About Me


This set has been sold.

An old Taylor-style full set. Concert pitch. Rather loud and strong and heavy, just right for those vaudeville gigs. Set up and playing well.

Maker unknown. My best guess, built around 1900. Ebony, nickel silver, ivory, boxwood. Original Bass, baritone and tenor regulators, bass and baritone drones. I made the mainstock, tenor drone and other minor parts.

I made the five-keyed chanter and the reedcap. It is a copy based on the original, worn-out chanter which comes with the set. The bore and sound holes are made to my design. I incorporated the ivory mounts and popping valve from the original chanter.

Came with an old wooden case, documentation (mainly what I did to repair & restore) and the old parts, including chanter, bellows, bag, etc.
