McCallum P3 All Black Poly Bagpipes.bought by me and played all over Scotland this summer!! while i was on tour. . The P3 set is black, with imitation ivory ferrules, and ringcaps. The pipes are made from black acetyl plastic, which is extremely durable and easy to maintain. We have been playing plastic or polypenco pipe chanters since the early 70.s when African Blackwood was in very short supply, and Ireland's only bagpipe maker, Andrew Warnock of The Pipers Cave in Northern Ireland, stumbled across a new alternative material, which, at the time was used for making police batons: an extremely strong and durable machinable acrylic composition known by several names.
I have one of the original chanters and am still playing it at times!
So why not Poly bagpipes; These pipes can hold up to all kinds of weather and use. McCallum's famous Poly pipe chanter is standard on all Poly sets.
Made in Scotland.
THINK poly is light , think again, these are solid

ready to go, this is an excellent set at a very keen price,
ONLY ONE at this price

This is what McCallum say: Our black Acetyl bagpipes have virtually the same sound quality as our Blackwood bagpipes and the drones have identical dimensions. We have a great choice of very keenly priced bagpipes in the black Acetyl range.
Why Choose Acetyl?
We have been asked many times for this type of bagpipe. They are popular as a starter set, but also as an instrument which can be used for long parades in all climates. They are virtually indestructible, so the worry of any cracks appearing in extreme heat or cold is removed. They are also very easy to clean and maintain, so are the ideal choice as a bagpipe that may be passed on from one band member to another, or one learner to another. Perfect as a starter set before you decide to invest in your particular style of Blackwood bagpipe.
