Default Re: I hate my bagpipes

Yes, I purchased a set I hated. First non-Pakistani set I owned.

*Every* wooden section warped with two years, including the blowpipe stock (it's only 2 inches and had a noticeable warp!). The top bass pin became so warped you could tune the drone top even half way down the pin (not that you would, but...). It looked like Gonzo's nose.

On top of that, the varnish all starting peeling off, especially any place you'd touch....

Then all the mounts started falling off.

Simply dreadful. Glad to have gotten rid of them. Put them on eBay described and photographed with all the flaws and still got a few hundred bucks for them (I think I posted them for $100).
