In 2018, we introduced our new Heritage Bagpipes, designed and created in celebration of 150 years of the crafting of Peter Henderson Bagpipes.
Peter Henderson Heritage Bagpipes are made from African Blackwood, and decorated using nickel with unique laser-etched designs or hand engraved silver. As a unique design element, the projecting mount profile is based upon a 1910 set, which are more refined in comparison to those of the 1920s, and are made of Boxwood. Each piece of Boxwood is carefully selected to ensure a first-grade rating and polished to a high natural lustre, providing a beautiful contrast to African Blackwood.
As with all R.G. Hardie & Co African Blackwood bagpipes, the Heritage set features an innovative plastic lining system in the blowpipe and blowpipe stock which protects the inside of the wood from the stresses and strains caused by moisture. Each set of Heritage Bagpipes come with their own unique number engraved on the bass stock.
