  • "I looked for over 6 months to find the right person to make my first set of bagpipes. I knew I wanted something handmade, not machine made. After reading, watching (Scotland on TV), and listening about how Douglas handcrafts the pipes himself, I made my decision of who i wanted to craft my bagpipes. The craftsmanship and attention to detail was shown in his work. My instructors and fellow pipers commented on how well they were made and sounded. For someone like me who is new to the world of bagpiping, I would highly recommend Douglas if you want a great experience in a custom, hand made bagpipe"
