I use a variety of methods and techniques, known since the heyday of the Renaissance and Baroque. Each new bagpipe incorporates all the skills and knowledge that I obtained in creating the previous instruments.
For over 25 years, I have studied the heritage of world art. I believe that the beauty of the instrument and the elegance of its design are inseparable from the sound it creates. The acoustic properties are directly dependent on external lines, shapes and volumes, which together form the body of the instrument. The great masters, such as Jacques Martin Hotteterre, Thomas Stensby, William Kennedy, Alexander & David Glen, Leo Rowsome, Colin Ross and Hamish Moore, guided me in my path towards becoming a bagpipe maker. I draw inspiration from meeting and socializing with my musician friends, living around the world and customers who often become my friends.
