I mean, have you seen some of the pipes being made in Bulgaria? Horn-covered chanters, metal-inlaid pipes, relief-carved pipes, mother-of-pearl-inlaid pipes, and apparently pipes made completely out of cow horn. Best of all, they all play with excellent stability and full resonance without particular effort on the part of the piper (presuming the reeds survived transit). Of course, I understand that you probably already know most of that, having some experience playing gaida.

As far as I'm concerned, it only makes sense that boutique pipemakers congregate in Bulgaria!
