In 2018 Peter Henderson Bagpipe Makers celebrated 150 years of in business. To mark this historic occasion they created this unique set of Heritage Bagpipes, which pays tribute to the Henderson tradition. It's an instrument of the highest quality to play and pass onto the next generation.
Peter Henderson Heritage Bagpipes are made from African Blackwood, instrument-grade boxwood and nickel with a unique laser-etched thistle design. The projecting mount profile is based on a 1910 set, which is more refined in comparison to those of the 1920s. The boxwood we have carefully selected is rated first grade and polishes to a high natural lustre, providing a beautiful contrast to African Blackwood. Using state-of-the-art software we have created a unique thistle design with a level of detail that can only be achieved with laser etching.
• Fully combed and beaded African Blackwood
• Laser etched nickel ferrules, slides, ring caps and mouthpiece slide
• Boxwood projecting mounts and bushes
Peter Henderson Bagpipes are among the most sought after bagpipes in the world. Their unique sound and tonal qualities ensure pipers of all abilities aspire to own a set.
PH Blackwood bagpipes feature an innovative plastic lining system in the blowpipe and blowpipe stock which protects the inside of the wood from the stresses and strains caused by moisture.
Each set comes with its own unique number engraved on the bass stock and covered by a manufacturer's 5-year guarantee.
