My bagpipes are made from blackwood and American cherry. My father harvested and milled the cherry from my birthplace, my parents' farm in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The mounts that Douglas chose to turn from the cherry are swept back old style. The ferrules are brass, which I felt would match the warmth of the look and sound of the pipes. The pipes are plain turned and adorned with a cherry chalice top.

Julia Campbell's Image Gallery

"I am a beginning piper. Douglas and Jan took very good care of me.They were both very attentive and patient in educating me and addressing all my questions. Douglas is a master crafstman and was attentive and sensitive to all that interested me concerning the look and sound of my pipes. It is rare to find people with this degree of integrity. I told Douglas what I liked and let him make many of the final decisions, because I clearly recognised that he was an artist ,understood his craft, and knew what makes a beautiful Highland pipe.

I love my pipes and couldn't be more excited about learning to play them. I would recommend the MacPhersons to anyone that appreciates the beauty of a handcrafted instrument. These pipes are just gorgeous in every way!"
