Garvie Bagpipes

Real Border pipes hand made by a craftsman with over 30 years experience, and a reputation for making top quality instruments

We are currently taking orders for border pipes and a limited number of SSP in A.

 The order books were closed last year. I was involved in a major music project* and needed a break after 30 years at the lathe. I am now taking orders for again for a limited number of pipes as I continue to spend time writing and playing music. Full back up service for pipes remains in place. 

*My first solo CD is currently being mixed, and should be available before the summer. It features my own songs only, I would not pretend to be able to play pipes at anything remotely like the level achieved by many of my customers!

Repairs and overhauls: We are no longer generally doing overhauls or repairs. Contact Alan Waldron of Stirling Bagpipes for these.

Smallpipe reeds: We are no longer supplying smallpipe reeds on a regular basis. There are a number of makers who do supply these reeds. In the first instance contact Stirling Bagpipes or Pipe Dreams, who are familiar with our smallpipe chanter designs. The exception to this is specialist chanter reeds for our louder “Session smallpipes”, we will be able to supply these again for a while, but only after April 2018.

Pipe reeds: Replacement or spare Border and Session pipe reeds can be purchased direct from Pipe Dreams. Theirs are very close to the design we supply. This also applies to replacement or spare drone reeds.
