Yes, that`s exactly it. It's not so easy to see the similarity to uilleann pipes...
I didn't mean to say these are good pipes, and "offend the senses" both visually and acoustically is probably the right expression (the sound sample certainly does offend my senses).
But - they do play, which cannot be said about every other set, and the one I tried was well enough in tune. Also, you might use the bellows for your next camping trip (the bag actually has great resemblence to an air mattress).

I purchase a Sulshi practice set mainly to see if I could get lucky on the bellows & bag. It was only around $158 including shipping. I was surprised the chanter actually had a reamed bore. (usually Pakistani chanters are only roughly step-bore) The reed furnish did not match the chanter, but the chanter played the scale fine with a reed staple slightly narrower than the posted Seth Gallager design. I was pleasantly surprised!

Is the bag completely airtight and how do the bellows feel?
