Product Description

McCallum bagpipes has introduced small pipes to their range of quality instruments. Engineered to produce the same high standards in appearance and tone that have made their bagpipes renowned the world over, this instrument provides great playing pleasure and satisfaction to the owner.

Pictured with celtic engraving and imitation ivory mounts seen here, these black wood smallpipes are bellows-blown with a handmade leather bellows, and are fitted with a Bannatyne synthetic bag, velvet cover, Ezeedrone reeds, and cane chanter reed, and drone switch.  The drone switch allows you to turn the drones on and off.

They feature the following engraving patterns:  Celtic, Thistle, Victorian Scroll, Zoomorphic.

Highland pipers will find great enjoyment after mastering these pipes, which use the same finger techniques as the Highland pipes. The sound is rich and melodic and, of course, not as loud as your Highland pipes, making them the perfect compliment to your indoor playing and performances.

  2. Beautiful in every way

    I just got my McCallum smallpipes yesterday, and couldn't be more pleased. The materials are of highest quality workmanship is exquisite, and the pipes were very well packed for shipping. My set came with Celtic knot engraving and mopane mounts, a beautiful combination. They arrived with chanter and drone reeds installed, and only a bit of adjustment of two of the drone reeds was needed to have them playing, beautiful sound and well balanced. I've owned other bellows-blown smallpipes over the years, but I was stunned by the superior quality of these pipes. Every detail of the chanter, drones, bellows, and bag--the turnings, buckles, leatherwork, mounts, engravings, and covers--reflects a pride of craftsmanship that will make this set a keeper. In my dreams this set will be handed down someday to a grandchild. (And I should add that the price beat everyone else's by a good margin.) Thanks to John for his assistance in getting these from Scotland even in the face of the coronoavirus pandemic. Needless to note, J.Higgins is my go-to source for all things Scottish from here on.

  4. great set of pipes

    I couldnt be happier with jhiggins service and these pipes. They are extremely nice and well made you get what you pay for and its pretty obvious once you get your hands on these.

    The tone is great I'm just new to the bellows aspect so I'm working to get that figured out.

    the blackwood chanter and pipes are very nice looking well done product.
