Scottish Small Pipes, and Shuttle Pipes by John Walsh

All Small Pipes are not created equally. Our Small Pipes are handcrafted in the John Walsh Bagpipes' workshop, precision tuned, and rigorously tested. Great care is taken and a vast amount of time is spent on production and assembly to ensure the highest possible quality and balanced tonal perfection of each individual instrument.

The Walsh Shuttle Pipes are hand crafted from quality materials to produce a uniquely sweet sound that is ideal for intimate performances where the Highland pipes would prove too overpowering. The Shuttle Pipes are very affordable, require minimal upkeep and are generally “fun to play”. They are very melodious and certainly an ideal instrument for practicing, as well as performing, by all levels of Highland Bagpipe players. The Shuttle Pipe is crafted from rock maple, is mouthblown and uses practice chanter reeds.

The Walsh Shuttle Pipes are similar in style and shape to the Shuttle Pipe which dates as far back as 1695. The original Shuttle Pipe was bellows blown and had three open ended drones which were carried in one main stock with a plain open ended chanter made of ivory. The chanter was closed at some time during the eighteenth century and later keys were added to increase its note capacity. Mounting the drones in a single stock was typical of the Old Irish or German Pipes. All Small Pipes are not created equally.
