Mace Ramsay's Image Gallery

"I decided I need a challenge so took up learning the bagpipes and have never regretted it (although Janet sometimes did). I wanted a set of pipes I would be proud of and would have to keep playing. I found Douglas on the web and although it took many emails to refine the design he was very patient. I think the final design we achieved is very elegant in its simplicity. They certainly attract attention and the sound is often commented on very favourably. My chanter has only ever had one hole taped, the rest of the bandís chanters look like Buddhist prayer wheels. I have settled on Ross chanter reeds, Canning tenor and a MG bass drone reeds."

" I have sent Doug samples of the very resonant Western Australian hardwood and hopefully he will be able to make me another set from these woods this year.." Mace Ramsay
