Default Re: Name this bagpipe

WOW... I just had deja vu a little bit. Whatever these are... they are some kind of knock off of those. OR maybe they are those, after 30-40 years of exposure to high wasteland desert climate...

These were Ken Miller's bad weather and all around "beater set".... from back in the day before Poly/Delrin Pipes existed. I kind of suspected they were of Mid-East manufacture. I played them for about 7 years... and actually got a good sound out of them. Getting a sweet sound out of that lot isn't the most brilliant way to make friends with people who arent getting the most out of thier new'ish set of known maker Pipes.
