    For your pipe-makers list: David Daye ( is out of Cuyahoga Falls, OH and is a maker of Uilleann Pipes. Not affiliated with him, I’ve just read that he makes good pipes on the Chiff & Fipple forums.

      Since uilleann piping links are so well represented elsewhere, we’ve decided to just link to the Na Piobairi Uilleann site for their uilleann pipe makers list.

    I wish I would have found ANPA before I joined the Lowland & Border Pipers Society. The only reason I joined them is to get the lower price on their small pipe instruction book. The UK is such a long way from Syracuse NY and It’s impossible to attend meetings/ gatherings in Scotland. I’m glad I discovered this group. I’m looking forward to receiving my Nate Banton smallpipes in the near future. Keep up the good work you are doing on this site.

    Has anyone considered including an audio file to go along with sheet music included on this site.? I’m just a novice but I seem to learn new tunes the best when I can listen to the tune then use the music to fill in the blanks. Maybe this is not possible but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
    Thanks, Ron

    Glad to see this resource on a uilleann and GHB-dominated internet.

    For my part, I’ll do what I can to stir up the sackpipa, zampgona, and gaita players to contribute some articles. I really do need to get an article up to let folks know how awesome the Swedish bagpipe is (near-full chromatic scale without keys!)

    Pastoral Pipes

    I’ve found surprisingly little information about the Pastoral Pipes online. They might also be called Union Pipes. I could be wrong about that.
    Is there a knowledgeable person out there that would be interested in sharing an article with the APNA about these pipes?

    • Nate Banton March 28, 2011 at 6:32 pm

      Kyle, yes indeed we would love someone write about pastoral pipes. We know one person who is the North American expert. He’s hard to contact but we will try!
