Default Putting a silver sole on a chanter

I have a silver sole that I would like to put on a solo pipe chanter.
Could any of you please give me recommendations on who could do the work? Many thanks in advance.
Scott

Brian at Inveran or Thomas Doucet in St. Catharines, ON if you aren't concerned with sending across the border.

Fwiw...Inveran is closer to you ...but I had mine done by Roddy Maclellan while his shop was still in nj. Now he's in NC...but still does such items. 1st class.

I've had 2 done by Dunbar in Ontario. Absolutely perfect work, fast service, and reasonably priced. Couldn't be more pleased.

I would second the recommendation for Dunbar Ltd.

You'll not go wrong by it.
