Reader, Ann Chapman who lives in Glasgow, Scotland, has a set of pipes she wishes to sell on behalf of her son.
Ann tells us she bought the pipes – made by McCallum Bagpipes – for her son who learnt to play as a youngster through the Sheffield Pipe Band in England. Now grown up and at university, her son wishes to sell the pipes to support his studies.
The pipes – nickel and imitation ivory – sound excellent and, as the photograph indicates, the sale includes two practice chanters and a pipe case amongst other items.
Please contact us in the usual way in the first instance and we shall pass your interest to Ms Chapman.
