~Hardie Twist Trap Practice Pipes ~

Introducing Twist Trap Practice Pipes, a set of mouth-blown smallpipes incorporating a long practice chanter and two drones. They produce a softer more mellow tone in comparison to the Highland Bagpipes and pitch in the key of A (440Hz), a general tuning standard for many musical instruments. They are fun to play on their own or in a group setting along with other instruments. 

“I have been playing a set and they are great fun, much better than practicing on a practice chanter,” said Alastair Dunn, Managing Director of R. G. Hardie & Co.  “They will help beginners with the transition from chanter to pipes and understanding the importance of maintaining constant pressure when blowing.”

Features of the Twist-Trap Practice Pipes include:

 Suitable for Pipers of all abilities

• Twist Trap Moisture Control

• Long Practice Chanter

• Bass and Tenor Drone 
• Integral Valve
• Synthetic Pipe Bag
• Corduroy Bag Cover 
Deluxe Carry Case 

 *One set available*

Electronic Bagpipe for Scottish and medieval music


with Scottish, shepherd's pipe, Huemmelchen and medieval fingering
leather bag in red or black.



The Redpipe classic is a model without a blowpipe. The leatherbag is stuffed with filling material.
The bourdons/drones, the chanter and the overblowing function are pneumatically controlled by pressing the bag. The amount of pressure, which is necessary to get the instrument going is adjustable to individual needs. So, the instrument can be played without applying a lot of pressure to the bag.


open, half open - Scottish (GHB), chromatic, vibrato, Shepherd's pipe, Huemmelchen and Dudey, Renaissance, medieval Bagpipe ( in minor) and Gaita.


Scottish Highland Bagpipe (GHB), Smallpipe, medieval bagpipe and Gaita. The sound is sampled from the original pipes. The sounds are microprocessor controlled and are modified along the keys.

 Real Bagpipe Sound:

With a traditional bagpipe the tone is in the beginning and the end of a tune a bit lower depending on the appropriate air pressure in the bag. This typical characteristic of a traditional bagpipe is part of the Redpipe functionality.


Keys can be modified in halftone steps.


The factory setup of the  Redpipe is A 440 Hz . If modifications are necessary, while playing together with other instruments, the Redpipe can be adjusted.
The pitch setting is global and does not depend on what instrument has been chosen. Keys can be switched and the total setup is still consistent with other instruments.

 Micro-Pipes: Electronic Practice Chanter

Made by Ross. The Micro-Pipes are an affordable practice chanter that electronically reproduces the sound of the Standard Great highland Bagpipe chanter scale in the key of b flat without drone accompaniment. The notes are played in a very realistic manner by covering electronic touch sensors, positioned to exactly match the finger spacing of a regular pipe chanter. You can increase or lower the volume of the unit to suit your requirements. This unit takes 2 AAA batteries. There is no external sound box on this unit so head phones which come with the unity are used to hear the sound. If you are in the market for a low cost high quality electronic practice chanter, than this is the one for you. Headphones are included


  * Brown Bagpipe Supply has additional sets of new and used pipes arriving weekly.
