Yes, Scottish Shopper was a well-known business and supplier, based in Seattle, up through the '80s...perhaps later. Not sure when it went out of business. I bought my first PC, and other things, from them 40 years ago. I think Jack's son, Angus, was P/M of a band in Spokane...perhaps elsewhere.

What do you mean when you say the full set bears the mark?

There are 14 wooden parts that go into a full set of pipes; how many are stamped Bagpipe Trend?

I didn't imply that the mark was all over the set; it's only on the chanter. I merely stated that it was a full set (I.E. it wasn't missing any parts) and, as a separate piece of information, that it bore that mark. I explained this in more detail in the dedicated post that I made for the set.


Although only the chanter was stamped, I am pretty sure that it is original to the set. Like the rest of the set, it is made of some kind of lightweight, reddish wood (rosewood?) and the general crafting of it and shade of the yellowed catalin sole match the rest of the set.
