Grainger & Campbell


George Grainger and Neil Campbell founded the business in 1946.  Their bagpipes and chanters were very highly respected and enjoyed great popularity in the 1960's and early 1970's.  The business closed in 1989.

The style of the bagpipe changed dramatically over the years.  They ranged from an almost "Hardie" look into something much more distinctive with chunky blocks and very narrow tuning pins.  The sound was pretty good in the early 70's.  It's not unusual to find later examples with evidence of "green" wood. 

Alistair Fletcher worked there during the 1980's before establishing his own respected bagpipe making business.
