Andrew's Bagpipes
More Pictures

To create these images, I placed my pipes directly on my scanner so they are decent quality images, the interesting thing is the inclusion of a ruler for scale.

Back to the main page describing my bagpipes.

Wow! Look at those pipes!The bass drone cap (left) is 1-13/16" across, the tenor drones are slightly smaller at 1-3/4". The outside diameter of the wood rings in the drone caps are 1-3/8" on the tenors and 1-7/16" on the bass.

This is the upper section of the bass drone.

The grooves around the drones are tight groups of seven separated by a larger pair of grooves that are slightly wider apart.

The slider's end is wrapped in black waxed hemp, if you're curious.

(There's some distortion, due to the drone being diagonal on the scanner bed.)
