Single G drone, mouthblown Bagpipes in G/C with semi chromatic fingering, by Jim Parr.
Because I have a damaged hand, I have had 2 keys fitted to the chanter – one for the RH thumb, as I have no feeling in it so wouldn’t know if I was covering the hole or not and one for the RH little finger as the injury also affected by ability to stretch for the bottom hole.
The keywork was done by Pete Worrell, the Flute Maker.
These pipes would ideally suit someone with small hands, because of the modifications.
Price:-  £395, including postage.
