He turns every piece of wood used in the bagpipe, and as an accomplished silversmith, also makes every ferrule, projecting mount and drone cap!

The MacLellan bore was originally based on a set of 1880's Henderson bagpipes belonging to my Grandfather from North Uist. Some changes have been made to the tenor tops and bass drone, and now gives us the big, rich and complex sound most people have come to know as " the MacLellan Drone Sound."
