Welcome to the Dunbar Bagpipes
Bagpipe Maker Ltd., established in 1967, is leading the ancient art of
bagpipe making into the 21st century.
Dunbar, our founder, worked for Henderson Bagpipes, where he apprenticed
in the 1930's. When Jack immigrated to Canada, he had the knowledge of
Henderson specs and tooling. His decision was to make his bagpipes in
the Henderson tradition, with a few minor tweaks thanks to the
knowledgeable input of The Captain, Ken Eller. Dunbar Bagpipes have the
same great sound as the traditional Henderson bagpipe.
procedures and employees have been in place for years. Jack himself
taught most of our employees the skills he perfected while making
bagpipes so many years ago in Scotland. All mounts, whether they are
imitation ivory, nickel, stainless, etc. are securely threaded into
place. We have a wealth of experience not only in making one of the best
bagpipes on the planet, but also in repairing and restoring sets from
around the world and across the ages. We know bagpipes!
Everything about our bagpipes speaks
of quality! There are no short-cuts and no
