Peter Henderson is celebrating 150 years of bagpipe making in 2018. To mark this historic anniversary, they have created this unique set of Heritage bagpipes paying tribute to the Henderson tradition. Peter Henderson PH01HT Heritage bagpipes are handcrafted from the finest African Blackwood, exotic Satinwood from East India and Nickel with a unique laser-etched thistle design. The projecting mount profile is based upon a 1910 set, which are more refined in comparison to those of the 1920’s. The carefully selected Satinwood is rated first grade and polishes to a high natural lustre, providing a beautiful contrast to the African Blackwood. Using state-of-the-art software, this instrument features a unique thistle design with a level of detail that can only be achieved with laser-etching. An innovative plastic lining system protects the inside of the wood from the stresses and strains caused by moisture. This bagpipe is supplied as either sticks only excluding chanter or as a complete set with Peter Henderson plastic pipe chanter and your choice of blowpipe length, synthetic pipe bag, synthetic drone reeds, silk cords and pipe bag cover. All Peter Henderson bagpipes are accompanied by a 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee and each Heritage set comes with it’s own unique number engraved on the bass drone stock. An instrument of the highest quality to play and pass onto the next generation.
