Donald MacDonald made exquisite bagpipes in Edinburgh between 1806 and 1840.
Few examples of his work are with us today, however they remind us of the skill and care of old world craftsmanship.
These pictures are courtesy of Charley Kron and Dave Atherton. Dave did the restoration of these pipes. Dave was careful not to upset the beautiful finish of the bagpipe. His primary goal was to preserve the bagpipe as originally found. When Dave speaks of the workmanship in this bagpipe, it is with respect bordering on reverence. Amazing.
