Great Highland Bagpipes

We have bagpipes! We've chosen to bring you pipes by both Dunbar and Piper's Choice. Both brands make high-quality pipes at affordable prices. Dunbar has a well respected name, but we think Piper's Choice is just as good, for less money. It's your choice!
Dunbar pioneered the use of Delrin (a dense, high-quality polymer) as a substitute for real blackwood in the making of bagpipes. (All sets below are made of Delrin.) Delrin pipes are durable, all-weather, maintenance-free, and they sound great!
Each set includes your choice of either a leather or synthetic pipe bag, several decorative color options, a cane chanter reed, and synthetic drone reeds.
If you are comparison shopping, and find a better price somewhere else, please make sure you know what you are getting. Many companies will just send you a box of parts. Every set of bagpipes we send out are tied-in, set-up, and ready to play! Also, all of our bagpipes have a lifetime warrantee! All Highland Bagpipes are special order. Please allow 3–6 weeks for delivery. Please contact us if you have any questions!

Important Note for Beginners — If you don't know how to play the bagpipes yet, you'll need to start with a practice chanter. Please don't purchase bagpipes until you know you are ready for them. The average learner will play a practice chanter for about a year before moving up to a full set of bagpipes. Contact your local pipeband for free lessons, and when the time comes, advice on buying your first set of pipes.

Student -Model Deluxe Highland Bagpipes

Piper's Choice Great Highland Bagpipes

Piper's Choice makes a good set of pipes for a great price. The Piper's Choice Basic Model is the most affordable set of Highland pipes available! And, the Piper's Choice Deluxe Model (pictured above) is nearly identical to the Dunbar P3, for quite a bit less money. (It's our best selling set of pipes.)

Piper's Choice Basic Model Highland Bagpipes

Piper's Choice Basic Model Highland Bagpipes
BPHS1 – $698
Rather than having separate mounts like the Deluxe Model, each part of the Basic Model pipes are made as solid, all-black pieces. The pipes are more durable this way (no mounts to crack on case of rough treatment or temperature extremes), and personally, I think the all-black looks pretty cool (though I like the look of the Dunbar P1 better (see below)). Made in Canada. The actual pipes have a lifetime warrantee. The bag, bag cover, cord, and reeds are guaranteed against defects, but will last more or less time depending on how they are cared for. Special order. Please allow 3–6 weeks for delivery.

Piper's Choice Deluxe Model Highland Bagpipes

Piper's Choice Deluxe Model Highland Bagpipes
BPHS2 – $798
The Piper's Choice Deluxe Model (pictured above) is nearly identical to the Dunbar P3, for quite a bit less money. (It's our best selling set of pipes.) Very nicely done in black Delrin with imitation ivory mounts. Made in Canada. The actual pipes have a lifetime warrantee. The bag, bag cover, cord, and reeds are guaranteed against defects, but will last more or less time depending on how they are cared for. Special order. Please allow 3–6 weeks for delivery.

Dunbar Great Highland Bagpipes

Dunbar is a very well respected pipemaker, and makes high quality, affordable, professional-quality bagpipes. The only difference between the three different Dunbar models is cosmetic — you can pay more for nickel or imitation ivory mounts if you like how they look, but they are going to play and sound the same. Dunbars come standard with a zippered Canmore Gortex bag (a $100 value), considdered by many pipers to be the best pipe bag available. Dunbar pipes are made in Canada.

Important Note for Beginners — If you don't know how to play the bagpipes yet, you'll need to start with a practice chanter. Please don't purchase bagpipes until you know you are ready for them. The average learner will play a practice chanter for about a year before moving up to a full set of bagpipes. Contact your local pipeband for free lessons, and when the time comes, advice on buying your first set of pipes.

Dunbar P1 All-Black Highland Bagpipes

Dunbar Model P1 Highland Pipes
BPHD1 – $998
The Dunbar Model P1 is my personal favorite. I like the smooth, all-black look. (I like to think that if Darth Vader played the bagpipes, these are the ones he would choose!) Made in Canada. The actual pipes have a lifetime warrantee. The bag, bag cover, cord, and reeds are guaranteed against defects, but will last more or less time depending on how they are cared for. Special order. Please allow 3–6 weeks for delivery.

Dunbar Model P2

Dunbar Model P2 Highland Pipes
BPHD2 – $1198
The Dunbar Model P2 includes a very nice-looking combination of both nickel and imitation ivory mounts. Made in Canada. The actual pipes have a lifetime warrantee. The bag, bag cover, cord, and reeds are guaranteed against defects, but will last more or less time depending on how they are cared for. Special order. Please allow 3–6 weeks for delivery.

Dunbar Model P3

Dunbar Model P3 Highland Pipes
BPHD3 – $1198
The Dunbar Model P3 has all imitation ivory mounts, and basically looks identical to the nice photo of the Piper's Choice Deluxe pipes (top of the page). What you are paying extra for here is the Dunbar name and reputation. Many players will argue that it is worth the extra money. Made in Canada. The actual pipes have a lifetime warrantee. The bag, bag cover, cord, and reeds are guaranteed against defects, but will last more or less time depending on how they are cared for. Special order. Please allow 3–6 weeks for delivery.
