Uilleann Piping Links
Links for trusted Uilleann pipe makers, reed makers and lots of information.
These are the pipes I currently play and are my personal favorite. If you don't know Fred, check him out he is a great Highland, Uilleann and tin whistle player from Scotland who has been making pipes with MacCallum bagpipes for sometime and has now begun starting making Uilleann Pipes. They have practice sets, 1/2 sets and Full sets available with shorter wait times than most makers.
Rob Gandara makes uilleann pipes using the best modern tooling to create an amazing sounding instrument with solid construction and a life time warranty. His pipes are carbon molded to the exact specifications as a Rowsome chanter. The density of the carbon and fiber orientation match that of African Blackwood. He currently has practice sets with NO WAITING TIME ! and will be offering 1/2 sets in the near future.
Brian Howard has been making reeds for over 30 years and in my opinion makes the best reeds on the market. Before I started making my own reeds I played his reeds for 20 years and I found them to be the most stable and responsive reeds I have ever played. Do yourself a favor and pick one of these up.
This is my website to learn the tin whistle. Very similar to this page except for the tin whistle.
