April 2014 – Straight-Neck

At the request of a few friends from the USA, we are also making custom pipe bags in the traditional “Straight-Neck” Style upon request. These are well-made, attractive bags and very comfortable to play. The neck on Straight-Neck bags does not automatically curve downward as much as “Swan-Neck” bags. When playing the “Straight-Neck” bags the piper pulls the chanter as he/she is playing. They are available in all of our hides: Cowhide, Goatskin and Sheepskin.
