Great Pipes, great customer service

The SL1 bagpipes are everything I expected them to be, high quality craftsmanship and great sound. Higgins did a great job attaching the stocks to the bag I chose and offered good advice on selecting the chanter, reeds, bag size, etc. My only wish is that extra hemp came with the purchase to help me get all the fittings tightened up when they arrived.
