David Booth makes bagpipes in Scotland. He started working at Kintail from 1978 until 1991, then started his own company and continues to make pipes today.

A set from the later 1990′s, thanks to GC for the pictures.

      John, are you still interested in a set of David’s pipes? I know of a set for sale. I have asked around but have not been able to find out anything on David’s whereabouts or doings. Harold, OHIO – USA

    I have a set of Booth pipes I think from 1992 or 93, I take good care of my pipes and everyone is always saying how they look brand new. I switch the original polypenco chanter for a Niall ABW, they sound great.
