LOt of nice sets of pipes on this thread and mine isn't as nice but it sound and plays well.
this is my set that I put together on a tight budget over last few years.
Bag is Kelleher tradition bag and fittings (just got this recently to go with drone and they are very nice)
bellow is something i put together. I used synthetic belting and plastic snaps as they are quicker to adjust and bit more comfortable for me.
chanter is David Daye Apartment chanter that I got 4 years ago. it has nice clean tone and works nicely with decent volume . (small bore chanter) I believe I got one of the first penny chanter with delrin body on this size. i made my own windcap and did some minor work to make it look nicer.
Recently I wanted a set of drones, but nothing was available on my budget or time, so i bought a cheap 200 buck pakistani set and took the drones off. and sold the rest on ebay for cheap practice set. These drone required complete reboring/sizing, some cutting and replacing bent bass drone tubes. So, in the end, the pakistani set was used mostly for the materials. i matched the dimension off daye's site for harrington drones and made the synthetic reed to go with them. They took bit of work, but they sound great and cost me less than 100 bucks and I feel they look fairly nice. I am pretty happy with the result. They are very stable and robust drone. Getting the chanter and drone balanced took quite a bit of effort, but I've learned a ton about both chanter reed and drone reed in the process and end result was quite worth it.
Overall I am happy with the result on my modest budget. (about $600 spent)
anyway. I've been playng irish flute/whistle for 20+ years, played highland pipe, but now I mostly play my whistle and uilleann pipes after taking few years off. my younger son has started on whistles as well, so I've been enjoying playing with him.
