Fred Morrison Uilleann Pipes - HALF Set
The half set consists of main stock with drone switch, drones (reeded), chanter windway with stop key, chanter and reed, bag and bellows.
The windway of the chanter on each full set is fitted with a stop key as standard. This makes life much easier when tuning the drones and also has
advantages when playing with other instruments. The drones, volume-wise, give a great balance to the chanter and have a lovely deep sound. As well as this,
theyre extremely air-efficient, which really adds to the enjoyment of playing the pipes.
The reeds we use for the drones are very high quality, synthetic reeds called Ezeedrones. The beauty of these reeds is that once theyre set, they
require little or no adjustment. They are very air-efficient, stable and sound great.
If a customer would like to put traditional cane reeds in their set, of course this can be done.
The chanter has good volume and very musical. It has a great action to play and the notes roll out very well. Great sounding back D and hard D and very
good overall tuning throughout the two octaves. Every chanter comes with two keys as standard F natural and C natural reeded of course.
The bag is hand made and stitched by world renowned bag maker Lawrence Thomson to a template which weve developed to give the player maximum comfort
The luxury hand made bellows are fully padded with hand-sewn plush leather cushions on the front and back to ensure comfort and ease of play. The
bellows are made from the highest quality components to ensure many years of great playing.
Materials: African Blackwood (ebony also available on request), brass with chrome plate.
