Shuttle Bagpipes offer a unique, enjoyable alternative to the Highland Pipes that are seen and heard so often today. Mainstays of 17th century music, Shuttle Bagpipes are smaller in size, but retain a full resonant sound. Maple cylinders, or "shuttles" are bored in such a way to maintain a small overall size while supporting long drones. This model, also crafted of Maple, offers two drones, a tenor and bass, plus a sympathetic chanter and sliders to maintain long term, accurate tuning. Walsh pipes display meticulous craftsmanship, an ideal alternative for the piper wanting a big, Highland sound without the size.
