Bagpipe Models

All models are fully hand crafted by MacMurchie Bagpipes in our workshop.

All bagpipes are made for the individual piper.

Your choice of either 1907 or 1936 Henderson internal bores with your MacMurchie bagpipe.

Here at MacMurchie Bagpipe Makers we produce all of our bagpipes from the very best quality African Blackwood. 


As we hand make all of the bagpipes from the block of wood to the finished product in our workshop, we can guarantee the highest quality bagpipe is passed on to you.


We also know that all pipers are different, therefore our bagpipes can be customised to your own requirements.


Do you want plain or engraved Nickel, Brass, Silver or even Gold Plate? The choice is yours in whatever you desire to make your bagpipe your  own.


Our bagpipes are modelled on Blue’s own 1936 silver and ivory Henderson and we have also reproduced  P/M Archie MacMurchie’s astonishing 1907 Henderson bagpipe. This give you the choice of style and sound, as each set has it’s own unique sound characteristics.



 *Choose from either imitation Ivory or imitation Horn or wooden projection mounts on any of our bagpipes


**If you do not require bag, cords, cover or pipe chanter with your MacMurchie Bagpipe please advise when ordering.
