Bag Pipes for Sale!!!
1961 Ivory and Silver pipes for sale.
Unfortunately, I have had to hang up my pipes. I have a wonderful set of 1961 Hardy with ivory and embossed silver. Perfect for any player considering an upgrade! I paid $7,000 for them about 15 years ago. I do not know what the market is now, but will be open to offers. I have a less valuable set of Robertson which I bought 30 years ago which I still occasionally play. I have been using my Kron chanter. If the price is right for the Hardy, I will include the Kron.
If anyone is interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I live in Ottawa and will be glad to show them off.
