Bagpipes and bagpipe parts are traditionally made from African Blackwood or similar woods which these days are in short supply and expensive to buy. However at Ayrshire Bagpipes the majority of our products are made from acetal, imitation ivory and stainless steel. Blowpipes, mouthpieces, stocks etc can be made from almost any material and will not alter the tonal quality of any traditional wooden bagpipe. All parts are individually crafted by Ayrshire Bagpipe Company in Ayrshire, Scotland by pipers for pipers.
The Ayrshire Bagpipe Company was set up in 1990 by Brian Mulhearn, a stalwart of the Scottish solo piping scene. With the attention to detail, passion and individual touch that only a small independently run business can achieve, the Ayrshire Bagpipe Company has gone from strength to strength.
