Smallpipes played with a border chanter is becoming popular with many players and is an option when ordering a smallpipe set. I call them, "Border-Smallpipes."
Smallpipes - key of A
4 drone African blackwood / bloodwood, brass ferrules.
~ Optional Delrin Hollow stock ~
The delrin hollow-stock allows you to turn any smallpipe set into a borderpipe set in less than a minute by changing out the smallpipe drones with borderpipe drones. The split chanter-stock also allows a borderpipe chanter to be quickly swapped with the smallpipe chanter, thus turning the set into a borderpipe in seconds and back to a smallpipe set just as quickly.
Split Stock ~ standard on all sets.
Smallpipes - key of D
African Blackwood with Burmese Blackwood mounts.
" The Dow"
