As a result of a very long cooperation with Scottish bagpipers we began to make typically Scottish instrument. We prefer natural materials, that's why we do not use gortex, plastic rings and so on, only good and seasoned wood, good leather, horn and silver for rings and lids. Frequency ("C" in bagpipers understanding) is 470–478 Hertz that is good for playing in bands of nowadays.
