All of the metalwork on this page is made in house at MacLellan Bagpipes. This way we can ensure the quality of the engraving and fit of the threading is to our high standards.
With our new designs and techniques we strive to be unique, and make your bagpipe distinctive!
The deep cuts, high relief, bright polish and hand textured backgrounds give a rich look and finish not possible with simple CNC engraving.
We can also do custom designs and engraving for Police departments, Fire departments, Pipe band logos, Clan Crests etc. Our first "Fire Fighter" bagpipes were commissioned by fire fighters in New Jersey, as a tribute to fallen comrades shortly after the tragic events of 9/11. The Standard "Fire Fighter" set would have the steamer fire truck ferrules, pike pole, US flag and ladder tuning slides and clover leaf caps. Additional patch designs can be incorporated.
All of these designs are available on Bronze or Aluminum alloy, ferrules, tuning slides and caps add $800.00
Sterling silver add $3000.00
