Great Highland Bagpipe – RG Hardie No. 1 AB
This pipe is made of African Blackwood and is played by numerous military bands worldwide. Pipes of the traditional company Hardie from Glasgow have a distinctive design and are available in various designs. Hardie Pipes are purely handcrafted to the highest standards.
Due to their favorable price-performance ratio, these instruments are especially suitable for beginners who do not want to sacrifice musical and craftsmanship quality.
Each pipe is marked with the Hardie name and the year of manufacture.
Basic version of the RGH01:
– African Blackwood with Plain Combing
– Beaded Nickel Ferrules + Ring Caps
– Projecting Mounts + Ring Cap Bushes from Blackwood
NEW: Effective immediately, all Hardie Blackwood bagpipes feature the following enhancements at no additional charge:
– The inner part of the blowpipe is made of plastic – so no more bursting of the middle part possible!
– The blowpipe stick is also made of plastic inside, which also makes this part 100% moisture resistant.
These parts, which are very often affected by cracks in conventional construction methods, have thus become much more reliable and durable. The internal plastic parts are not visible from the outside and do not change the classic proportions of the pipes!
