Pure Tone.

Sharing a statement and lovely sentiments from a long time friend and advocate of MacLellan bagpipes, Pipe Major James Cowie.

JC Piping has been a long time advocate of MacLellan Bagpipes, first coming across the unique bagpipe design in 2001 in New York on Liberty Island with members of the New Jersey State Police & NYPD Pipe Bands.

Playing MacLellan bagpipes for the past 21 years as been without a doubt the most enjoyable playing experience. These pipes are pure tone all day long!

MacLellan Bagpipes, born in Scotland and made in the USA by Master Craftsman Roderick MacLellan -- designed and manufactured the worlds most unique bespoke bagpipes ever made.

Roddy's research has enabled him to stay true to the sound created by late 19th century pipe-makers in Scotland.

The MacLellan Bore was originally based on a set of 1880's Henderson bagpipes belonging to Roddy's Grandfather from North Uist. Some changes have been made to the tenor tops and bass drone, providing the big, rich and complex sound most people have come to know as "the MacLellan Drone Sound."

His instruments are one of a kind and are sought by expert players throughout the world.

Pure Tone.
