Default Hagan bagpipes

You don't see Hagan pipes on Ebay very often


I'm guessing that the seller hasn't been paying attention for the prices used pipes go for on Ebay. I seriously doubt he will get half that price. A quarter of that price is more likely.

I visited Hagan's (Clan Bagpipes) workshop in Edinburgh in the 1980s and it was cool for someone who had never seen a pipemaking workshop, the floor covered with wood dust, stacks of various timbers, the ancient-looking lathe, and so forth.

But when I was working at a Highland Outfitter, and people would bring in random bagpipes they'd bought on holiday in Scotland to get them set up, somebody brought in a Clan Bagpipes set and it was very difficult to reed. That's my only experience with these instruments.

The condition of these pipes is given as "new "yet the seller says "Played these pipes for years..."
Are they new or used?

...they are also noted as ‘vintage ‘... the late ‘90’s Henderson reeds tell us ...something....I think. $5-600 might be plausible.

What would make these very plain pipes worth that kind of money? ( asking for a friend)
The only name I see stamped is Hagan, yet the seller names them as Hagan, Naill, Henderson

Something does not seem up to specs.
