“To the make of a piper go seven years. At the end of his seven years one born to it will stand at the start of knowledge, and leaning a fond ear to the drone he may have parley with old folks of old affairs. Playing the tune of the ‘Fairy Harp’, he can hear his fore folk, plaided in skins, towsy-headed and terrible, grunting at the oars and snoring in the caves, he has his own whittle and club in ‘The Desperate Battle’ … where the white-haired sea-rovers are on the shore, and a stain’s on the edge of the tide; or, trying his art on Laments, he can stand by the cairn of kings, ken the colour of Fingal’s hair, and see the moon-glint on the hook of the Druids.”

Blue MacMurchie gives the utmost attention to the quality of tone, and sound, and using only the best quality of African Blackwood for making a first grade quality Bagpipe whether it be for a novice or professional player.
