Excellent job on them. How long did this take? Did you make the bellow and bag too? Any chance we can hear them? I love their sound.

Are these what they call “bard’s pipes?” The ones you can sing along while playing? (the reason for the bellows)

What key are they in? “C”?

What does a set like that cost?
