Mark Hillmann half set, Nick Whitmer D chanter, a Seth Gallagher C chanter, tenor and baritone regulators, Pat Sky mainstock and C drones.

Sunday a week ago, I finally have a C 1/2 set going. I had to make a chanter and 3 drone reeds for it. Now I need to make tenor and baritone regulator reeds.

I own one half set which represents my best efforts as a pipemaker up till now ( still not quite balanced and tunedto my liking but playable), several dozen experimental chanters in various stages of butchery, two early sets of drones which worked alright but are pretty rough, all rowesome (rousome?) patterns. I am currently working on tenor and bari regs for my half set and upgrading all my tooling and designs.

David Boisvert C half set in Curly Lemonwood aka Castello Boxwood. Tenor and baritone regs on order from Joe Kennedy. Also have a UPB C chanter as a spare.

These ought to keep me out of trouble for a while.
