McCallum black Acetyl bagpipes have virtually the same sound quality as their Blackwood bagpipes and the drones have identical dimensions to the Blackwood range of McCallum Bagpipes.
Why Acetyl? These pipes are popular as a starter set, but also as an instrument which can be used for long parades in all climates. They are virtually indestructible, so the worry of any cracks appearing in extreme heat or cold is removed. They are also very easy to clean and maintain, so are the ideal choice as a bagpipe that may be passed on from one band member to another, or one learner to another. Perfect as a starter set before you decide to invest in your particular style of Blackwood bagpipe.
All McCallum black Acetyl bagpipes have a 10-year no quibble guarantee, but if looked after will last forever.
