Instrument making

I first started making instruments in the early 70s when I became involved with early music and the group Common Ground. We made rebecs, pipes, lutes and all manner of reconstructed  instruments from the medieval and renaissance periods. I then took up playing bagpipes and started by making my own smallpipes and various other early types. When I started playing the Union , or uilleann pipes it was not long before I started to make and sell this instrument. After a gap of a couple of decades when playing took over, I have now returned to making bagpipes. Watch this space for future pictures of making projects.
