MacPherson, Douglas

From the MacPherson web site -

“Taught as the last apprentice of the legendary Bert Gillanders, Douglas MacPherson has fine tuned his skills and knowledge for the last three decades.

In the modern world of bagpipe making with C.N.C. lathes and all manner of high tech manufacturing, it is becoming harder to find individually handcrafted, quality Scottish bagpipes. Douglas MacPherson has built up a reputation of being one of the most outstanding craftsmen in Scotland.

Each instrument is turned by hand, then stamped and numbered, there is no mass production – you are purchasing an individual set of bagpipes.

The standard and services you receive will be second to none – our feedback has been 100%.”
