Every set of pipes I make is made entirely to individual order. My styles and methods have been developed and well-honed in over 30 years of pipe-making, I can therefore guarantee that every set of Pipes I make will be fully in tune and properly adjusted to all of the expected norms of playing.
If you go to my ‘Uilleann’ page you will find many pictures showing details of my Irish Uilleann Pipes and in addition several articles on Uilleann Pipes, their history, and advice on buying Uilleann Pipes.

I hope you find what you are looking for on these pages and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
