WOW. What a beautiful set of pipes
Posted by Phillip Prest on 20th Jun 2020
I looked at all the different sets of pipes I could before deciding on this set. I watched a lot of video reviews. I could not be happier than I am with choosing these pipes. I'm a beginner player and I wanted my first set to be the set I play on for years. Well Wallace did just that.
The hand carved blackwood is perfect, The Wallace engraving is beautiful. You can see the attention to detail that goes into making these pipes.
Shopping on the J Higgins site was easy and had the best price I could find for this set of bagpipes. And they shipped the same day I ordered.
I look forward to learning to play on these pipes and to many years of playing on them

The price was fantastic and the packaging and pipe set-up was great. I was worried purchasing sight unseen but was not disappointed.
