Yes Jerry is still with us, though he is getting up there in age. The reason for sale I heard is that Jerry wanted to retire, but didn't have anyone to pass the company on to. His son passed away a few years back and apparently his daughter didn't want to take over the company. So selling was his only option.

Hi,
Some of the improvements we have made are making some adjustments to our pipe chanters, making our reeds straighter and improving cosmetically on other products.

Cheers,
Campbell
