F.S. Barrel Set

Post by chris bayley » Thu Jul 24, 2014 4:18 pm

I have a barrel set for sale. It is new and was just used at the Chateau d'Ars over the weekend of the 11th to 14th July as an example of an instrument in this style

Concert D and made from Palo Santo with metalwork of brass and imitation ivory.

It comprises
Chanter with C key and blocks for a further 5 keys (Eb,F,G#,Bb, d) to fitted when and if required.
Barrel drone unit with 4 separate drones. The usual 3 in octaves of D plus a further tenor that can be tuned to 'a' or 'g'. The two tenors can also be switched on and off using NSP style piston stoppers so it is possible to have just the Baritone and bass drone soundings or these with one or even both tenors.
Mainstock with drone on/off switch and sockets for future fitting of regulators
Hide bag and bellows gusset.
Now up on Ebay here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261544156272? ... 1555.l2649

New Website now live at http://www.uilleann-pipes.co.uk. It is still under construction with more to be added
My original website http://www.bagpipeworld.co.uk remains in place as historical
