GBP more to get zipper bag). Also, sending the item to non-EU country I avoided paying tax.
And I have to say I am pretty satisfied with it and should have considered to buy delrin/poly set as my first instead of beautiful, better sounding, but fragile and a bit-more-difficult-to-tune and maintain BW...
You mention more $ to get a zipper bag. These generally cost About $175 for a ( highly recommended ) hybrid bag with ‘leather like’ feel and heft.

So ..now you’re at ca $650...+ shipping.

If you are really committed to this....do yourself a large favor...order a set direct from Mccallum if you can make a phone call to them... ( or a retailer ...in DE?) ....10 yr warranty..it will come with everything you’ll need...get a standard practice chanter also. About $900-1000 total with shipping.
