This Henderson Bagpipes instrument is a reproduction of a Bagpipe made by P. Henderson around 1930s - 1940s Era. THE EXACT YEAR OF MANUFACTURE IS NOT KNOWN BUT IT’S BETWEEN 1930 - 1940s Era FROM Glasgow.
They were sourced and donated by PM Bert Barton and Dr Ben Jenkins of Georgia for the 18 years and under Piobaireachd solo piping contest at St Andrews Madras Collage in 1881.
They were won by well know Scottish piping figure, Pipe Major who played them with success in numerous solo and grade 1 pipe band competitions with the lothian and borders police pipe band. they have also been played at many prominent engagements including royal functions, Edinburgh tattoo, Toronto intercontinental tattoo etc. We acquired the bagpipe from him, was so impressed with the appearance and tonal qualities of the pipes that he approached us in 2015 about creating a reproduction.
Like the original, the tone is rich and subtle.
One of the longest pipemakers of the 20th Century, the Peter Henderson name is synonymous with great tone. From 1880 until 1973, the Henderson shop on Renfrew street in Glasgow was a hub for top pipers. Pipes have acquired a reputation for quality and magical tone up to this day and is generally regarded as one of the best pipemakers in the history of the instrument.
