Default Highland small pipe or Parlour pipes

Hi, I have recently been given a set of these pipes to repair.
They have not been played for 20+ years and I was wondering if anybody out there knows a reedmaker/bagmaker that can supply spares?
I can keep these pipes for as long as I can use them, and I am really looking forward to getting them going.
Thanks,
James

Hi,

Ronnie at Ezeedrone in Glasgow will make you artificial drone reeds to suit any pipes, although you'll need to leave them with him for a few weeks if they're unusual like these. Pretty much any pipe bag should do as long as it's the right size for you... I don't know how you feel about tying in yourself though. As for chanter reed I'm not so sure, maybe someone else will have some suggestions!

I use reeds made by Soundstream Music in my parlors. EzeeDrone now makes smallpipe reeds too; you'll have to request two tenors and a bass (instead of tenor, baritone, and bass);

My parlor pipes use a PC chanter reed; I've got a Watson in right now.

L&M Pipe Bags makes small hide bags; their 1/2 size (8 3/4" X 23") bag should do (mine's only 20").

try also kilberry smallpipe drone reeds.
Are made in his workshop, and for smallpipe are the best reeds that i try, better also than ezedrones for smallpipe.
On parlour pipes reeds are the same, i think.
bye
