Now for something completely different, a very nice new set, purchased but never played, for much less than it would cost new.

As it happens this set is only an hour's drive for me, so it might be possible to see in it person and pick it up.

I think I'll pass, as I'm well served by my two vintage sets.

Now this is odd, a seller with two listings of Dunbar sets which use the same photos

I've messaged the seller asking if it's the same instrument listed twice, or two different bagpipes.

My parade/bad weather set are Dunbar P1ís. They are nice pipes, but I find them harder to manager than my Naillís or Kintails. That was a great price though - we have a new member of our band that recently made the leap to pipes, and just played in his first parade, who has been asking for peopleís advice on pipes, who I did let know about that listing. I do not know if he bid on and/or won them, but other than how plain they are, I like them enough to recommend them to people.

the price on those Hendersonís was pretty incredible as well. I have read a number of people say that there are a LOT of mid range to lower upper range pipes on the market right now, which has driven prices down. I keep looking at the higher end (engraved silver and/or ivory), and clearly that same phenomenon isnít happening. Itís still always fun to look though!
