Default Where to buy Gortex gaita bags

I'm looking for a source for Galician Gaita gortex bags in the US or Canada. The Canadian-Cuban Celtic Society would like to give a few bags as gifts to the Cuban gaita players. They have a very hard time getting things like this themselves.

Not sure if it's much use, but this fella in Germany sells Gaita Gallegas and they are supplied with goretex bags.
Might be worth dropping him an email - maybe he'll let you in on how and where to get one. I know this guy and he's a very friendly and helpful chap indeed Worth a try ;)

Seivane sells just gortex bags alone in their online store. Maybe they too could help you out with a distributor on this side of the pond. https://seivane.es/en/tienda/index.html

Bringing this topic up again because I have a Spanish wedding I'm piping at coming up and I need a gaita bag.

I'm reaching out to Canmore in Scotland to find out their estimated delivery time.

When I've bought things directly from Spain they've taken forever to get here.

What would be ideal is a USA supplier which has the bags to hand.

Canmore makes them and they ship quickly from Scotland to the US or Canada. Check out their online shop.

Might these folks be willing to sell you one?

The shop says they supply their pipes with such bags.

Another possibility might be Mike Mac Harg in VT. He advertises "custom sizes" for Gaita bags.

Best wishes.

I just ordered one direct from Canmore.

They say they get to the USA in just a few days. We shall see.

Thanks! Richard

PS Iain at Canmore says they make a number of different sizes of Gaita bags, which aren't shown on their site.
