Fred Morrison Reel Pipes (Bellows Blown)

New product

In the key of A, Fred Morrison Reelpipes have the same fingering style and familiar ‘crack’ of the Highland pipes but have a softer, sweeter tone.  This makes them ideal for playing with other instruments in groups and sessions.  They are also an excellent solo instrument.

7 years, rich sweet sound

For over 7 years, I have played a set of Fred's McCallum Reelpipes and highly recommend them. From recording to collaborating with other musicians and instruments, these pipes have never let me down. They always remain stable and steady. The rich, sweet sound is the best I've heard!
