(Answer) (Category) Bagpipe FAQ : (Category) There is more than one kind of bagpipe? : (Category) The Uilleann (Union) Bagpipe :
Where do I get Uilleann pipes, and how much will they cost me?
Moderator: (inherited from parent)
Uilleann pipes are less widely available than are Highland pipes, and therefore you may have to do a bit more searching. Some of the suppliers listed in part 2 deal in Uilleann pipes. Alternatively, you may wish to purchase a used set of pipes or a new set directly from a maker. Be aware that many pipe makers (especially the better ones) have backlogs, and there may be a long wait for a new set of pipes. As with Highland pipes, prices can vary widely. Good-quality half sets (new) can be found for as little as $1,200 and as much as $2,500. Practice sets my cost less, while full sets will cost a lot more.
