MacMurchie Bagpipe Makers

Makers of quality handcrafted bagpipes and chanters.

Specialists in bagpipe repair and refurbishment & replacement of your bagpipe parts.

Small pipes & Practice Pipes

African blackwood with your choice of 

Imitation Ivory or Horn mounts 

available in Bellows, mouth blown or both

All of our smallpipes and Chamber pipes (Miniature highland) are available in both Polypenco or African Blackwood, bellows, mouth-blown or both. 

Our smallpipes and Chamber pipes (Miniature highland) come ready to play with a tied on synthetic bag and plastic drone reeds and a chanter reed and choice of velvet cover.


Our smallpipe bellows are made using a double skin for instant take up and pressure making them very powerful. This also does away for the need for any seasoning. 

We also fit our smallpipe bellows with vented valves which prevents the bellows inlet valve being blocked by loose clothing.
