I have had a set of Classic 2 Wallace Bagpipes from early 2011, I was fortunate enough to win the Kingdom Thistle solo championships which, like many other events, Wallace Bagpipes sponsor. The Prize for first place was a voucher to be spent at my discretion with Wallace Bagpipes, Craig is very close friend of mine and he made me a set of pipes exactly to my specification and he surely did not disappoint! Before I even played a note on these pipes the workmanship and finishing quality was second to none! The engraving was perfect and the bores where only to be described as like that on a rifle! Already highly impressed with how they looked I couldn't wait to try a few tunes on them and again I surely wasn't disappointed as they had a wonderful rich tone with a perfect balance between tenor and bass drones. These pipes work well with any set up, should it be plastic or cane drone reeds. My Wallace Bagpipes have a staying in tune power that very few other makes have to offer, I knew right then that I had a fantastic set of pipes under my arm! I would recommend these pipes to a learner, a part-time player or Professional pipers as I myself have played these pipes at the highest level of pipe band competition in both St Laurence O'toole and Field Marshal Montgomery and in solo competitions across the UK. Wallace bagpipes service is second to none and as Craig being a personal friend of mine I know he and his team of very capable craftsmen will go the extra mile to ensure that you have a world class instrument on your shoulder!
