18 years old now and they still sound Excellent

I purchased my full mounted Shepherd bagpipes from J.Higgins 18 years ago. After all these years they still sound great. They came with synthetic drone reeds,easy chanter reed and gortex bag . Playable right out of the box. I think Shepherd sounds as good as any brand out there. Only pipes I've heard that sound better were a set rare antique pipes a friend let me hear but well those sound better than most pipes. Shepherd pipe are excellent pipes right out of the box!
