    fulfils the demand for a White Core-tec head.  It features a para-aramide weave laminated with alternative layers of polyermic high density thermoplastics.  The hoop has a precision lock bead non-slip rim system which eliminates slippage of the head material.

    When all components have been unified they can withstand extreme tension and this in turn creates a crisp, sharp, durable and responsive playing surface.



Special Feature


Balance Tone Drone Reeds

Reeds have new improvements that include improved functionality, a longer plug and markings for recommended bridle settings. They continue to give a broad, smooth and deep sound, while still maintaining all the other great characteristics of steadiness, air efficiency and tonal quality.  The reeds lock in when tuning and stay locked in.


Balance Tone B Flat Drone Reeds

Due to many requests, now making these B Flat reeds by changing the tongues. Otherwise this reed is the same as the standard Balance Tone Drone Reed.


Balance Tone HR (High Resonance) Drone Reeds

This reed produces more harmonics which gives it a more refined sound which in turn results in higher resonance on the chanter notes. Includes distinguishing black plugs and has all of the functionality of the standard reed.


The Moisture Tube (MT)

We have received great feedback on this new product. It is light weight and very effective with purpose built components. When the hot air blown into the bags comes into contact with any restriction or obstacle it causes the hotter air to condense. The MT system’s built in air reductions and the cloth in the cartridge results in restriction of air flow making more condensation and cooling down the air. This new product allows for adjustments to how much restriction you want or need.


Split Stock Moisture Tube (SSMT)

This product offers the same wonderful features of the Moisture Tube but is designed for hide/sheepskin bags using the split stock


Moisture Control System (MCS)

The Moisture Control System (MCS3) has silica gel granules, resulting in longer playing time, flexi-joints with heavy walls to ensure tighter fitting, and an easy to adjust screw valve.


Bottle Trap

Improvements include addition of a Chamonix cloth to make the Bottle Trap a lot more effective.  Presently also experimenting with incorporating a removable valve into the system.


Drone Valves

Adjustable screw valve regulates the air flow to the drones.   The screw can be adjusted down the stock making it very easy to set the required pressure.  The valve comes as part of the CMCS3 but can be purchased as a separate product. Cartridges can be added later.


Hands Free.Pipe Carrier

The rain-proof pipe carriers, with or without the Bagpipe Specialist logo. They are easy to fold up and store when not in use.

The Trap Dri Moisture Control Trap (patent pending)

 has been developed to prevent excess water escaping from your water trap and saturating your pipe bag by capturing and retaining moisture in the tube to be emptied. A revolution in moisture control. The Trap Dri unit is fitted to your existing water trap tube and does not require a zip bag as it can slip through almost any split stock. (Currently supports the standard tube with external diameter of approx 20 – 23mm used by majority of pipers or tube with internal diameter of 19mm, we will adapt this to fit any tube size or system soon. Full bottle trap set up’s available in shop for synthetic zip bags now). With Trap Dri installed you will obtain a vastly reduced level of moisture into your bag. Designed to be so unrestrictive to airflow you won’t even know it’s there and enhance your playing experience. The trap works by collecting water which condenses inside your water trap tube and locks it inside the Trap Dri. Using a unique combination of air pressure and water flow to draw the water into the Trap Dri unit the water then becomes trapped and can’t make its way to the end of your tube where it can escape through the holes, resulting in better bagpipe performance. Using Trap Dri will prolong the life of your sheepskin or other animal skin bag by drastically reducing the amount of water your bag has to absorb. Using the Trap Dri in a synthetic bag by adapting it to fit your current system will greatly enhance the effectiveness of any existing moisture control by locking water away and preventing it running up the tube and soaking your moisture control system. In either animal skin or synthetic bag you will obtain a steady balance of moisture meaning your pipes will remain in tune longer and can be played longer than before. “Spend your time practicing tunes, not tuning”. The Trap Dri is virtually maintenance free. Simply remove every few weeks to clean. Give your pipes the treatment they deserve by installing this revolutionary new trap which never loses its effectiveness during use.
