Default Bagpipe Identification

I am looking for help in identifying a set of pipes I just picked up. They do have a few fairly unique features, so maybe someone will recognize these as a particular maker?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks

Look like Hendersons, tenor shoulder is not square like Hardies. See Ringo Bowens site: http://www.thebagpipemuseum.com/Cata...Celluloid.html

What features would be unique?

Here are the features I am seeing that make this difficult to place:

Mount shape-vaguely Robertson, however, they don't have the height of most of the Robertson mounts I have seen let along the space between the primary projecting part and the small bead above that.

Drone top shoulders- the drone tops look normally proportioned except for the thickness of the section above the shoulders. It has almost a Grainger and Campbell vibe to it, but if it were G+C, I would expect thin looking tuning pins and thicker chamber sections of the drone tops.

The cord beads are relatively nonmentionable, somewhat square and somewhat round without any hallmarking features.

The last picture makes the bell of the drone top look skinny but I think that is just a proportional thing with the thick profile above the shoulders.

I agree that the bass bottom looks like a replacement part that used the original mounts. I would guess that it was done fairly soon after the pipes were made since the mounts match well with the rest of the set color wise (often getting old mounts off of a scrap piece will involve some light turning or heat to get the glue to loosen up).

The stocks look pretty unremarkable, except maybe the squareness below the tie in groove and the length of in-bag stock that is below the tie in groove.

I gotta say, I am stumped on this one.

The profiles of the projecting mounts look like Kintails.
Any pics of the tops of the drones? Kintail bushes are quite raised above the cap rings.
