Smallpipes by Fred Morrison

2023-09-03

A set of Fred Morrison smallpipes in A, in basically unused condition. They’d be about £2k new but I only paid £1330 for them new about a year and a half ago so that’s what I’d be looking for, plus postage. Contact laurel43.cw.cw@gmail.com

Seivane Gaita in C

2023-04-10

I’m looking to sell my brand new Seivane gaita set in C or quite possibly to exchange the set for a bellows blown set of Fred Morrison smallpipes in A. I’m predominantly a Highland piper and bought and started to learn the gaita with the best of intentions. However I have realized I just don’t have the time to take up a second instrument. Guess I was impulse buying; my loss, your gain. The gaita set is made from granadilla with engraved triskele silver ring caps, bass drone, chanter and tenor drone, black velvet cover with black and red cords. Comes with sturdy Seivane embossed carry case.

Zampogna by Marco Ciancaruso

2017-06-01

Zampogna made by Marco Ciancaruso of Chiasso, Switzerland, in 2006.

The chanters are both G to D but an octave apart, the bass chanter runs G, A, Bb, B, C, D and the top chanter has the additions of an F# lead in and C#. The single drone is D, same note as the D on the bass chanter. The instrument is set up for use with bellows, not included. The woods are various but all appear to be fruit. The pipes are in basic working order, ie. all the pipes work well enough individually but some ability and understanding of setting up will be necessary to get them singing together sweetly, they have not been played for some years now. They come with a hard case and some Zampogna music including a simple tutorial. £475

Photos on request.

Uillean Pipes by Sean Jones

2023-11-26

Irish half set in Boxwood and Ivorine with compact drone and keyless chanter.

These pipes were made for me in February 2019. Due to an issue with my pinkie finger they have only been played for an hour or so from new. They are consequently in ‘as new’ condition, as are the bellows.

NEW Price: £1750 plus postage.
