Default Another eBay deal

I find it odd that the seller names the brand of the pipe bag and drone reeds, but fails to name the manufacturer of the pipes themselves...anyone able to ID them?

Probably because a lot of bagpipes do not have the maker's name stamped into the wood somewhere, and it takes a practised eye to identify a set definitively. At least the seller didn't zero in on the name on the chanter and apply that to the whole set (as we've seen many, many times).

Those don't look like ABW to me.

Not sure, with only that one photo, but it looks to me like either they're plastic, or painted black.

For sure potential buyers should be demanding more photos, and better photos, of the pipes.

From his feedback, one can tell he has sold pipes before. I venture the vague listing is purposeful. I could be wrong but would only say "red flag" and caveat emptor.

The stocks don't seem to match the rest of the set. Will

The bass stock seems to have excessive wear (age?) and the drones seem not to have much wear. My guess is that the reason the seller didn't name the maker is that he cannot as the set is a mix of parts from different makers. Be interesting to find out if this is the case.

Cheers -
