The MaxiStick is a precision made blowpipe available in a range of sizes from 8 inches to 12 inches. It has a large bore to allow maximum airflow into the pipe bag and is available with either an imitation ivory or black projecting mount.
The mouthpiece is threaded with a 30TPI thread onto the body which accomodates all mouthpieces included in the range of bagpipes from R.G. Hardie and is commonly used by other bagpipe makers.
The MaxiStick has an integral valve assembly which will allow the valve to be replaced when necessary. To access the valve unscrew the hemp part below the projection mount. We recommend smearing Vaseline on the valve for a better seal.
