pakistanipipes in National museum of Scotland!

Post by KM » Tue Sep 29, 2009 8:00 am

I was interested to see this quote on an ebay advert, whatever it is supposed to mean I don't know.

"Hakamdin bagpipe is a part of an extensive and thoroughly documented collection of bagpipes in the NATIONAL MUSEUM OF SCOTLAND in Edinburgh."

Hmmm...are they proudly on display at the top of the trash bin behind the museum?

Only $149, what is the quality of the bags and bellows in these sets? Might be worth it for those items only if someone could find a decent non-pakistani chanter to go with them.

Well whatdyaknow the National Museums Scotland does have one set of Hakamdin bagpipes. They are on display in Glasgow at the National Piping Centre. It has been a few years since I've been up there so I didn't know that till today.

It almost might be worth the $149, to check it out. Plus along with the bag and bellows, you get a free piece of firewood to warm your house. :)
