Thanks Jeff. The chanter is for me but the drones are for a customer who recently purchased a different chanter I made for him. So together with Malcolm McLaren bag and bellows he now has a half set.

Cheers,

The regulators are Honduras rosewood, the drones are ebony, and the mainstock is narra.

Four regulators I made and just added to my original Chris Bayley set:

Still a Work in Progress - I need to reduce the length of the middle piece of the Double Bass reg H section, and then make the final version in Nickel Silver.

From the early days - a set circa 1978 with some unusual features that recently came back for fettling (Clean and polish,New reeds, replace cracked mounts).
It was made as a half set - the regulators were added by Dave Williams.
It is one of the first barrel style sets with the unit being a half length one with conventional drone tops. The object was to keep the drones as close together as possible so that when the planned 4 regulators were added ('normal 3' plus a double bass) the instrument was not overly wide.
The tenor drone plugs into the top of the barrel section
It has one of the few chanters where I have scalloped the tone holes

I made a total of three sets in this style

Chris - I like the oval shape of the bellows. What is the length of the paddles?

They would be around 250 to 260mm long with a maximum width of 160mm. My conventional shaped bellows are 260 long withy a maximum width of 150mm.

As mentioned this was an early set (circa 1978) where I was working out ways to keep sets as compact as possible and is one of three sets made with the standing sections of the drones as a "barrel"
