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!
