Borderpipes

Borderpipes generally have two or three drones in a common stock, and a conical bore chanter. They keep a lot of the characteristic vibrant tone of the Highland pipes, but at a lower volume. Although they are not as well known as the Highland pipes, they have a history on both sides of the Border and in the Scottish Lowlands which goes back some 500 years. The popularity of these pipes has increased over the last dozen years or so, as the standard of the pipes available has improved, and a growing number of pipers have appreciated their particular musical qualities. Border pipes are also sometimes called Scottish Lowland pipes, Lowland pipes, Reel pipes, Parlour Pipes, Folk Pipes or Half Longs.

One way in which the Border pipes are more versatile than the Highland pipes or the Scottish smallpipes, is that in addition to the standard scale, the chanters can give accurately pitched cross fingered accidentals, although they use the standard fingering of the Great Highland Bagpipes.

Their tone, volume, and the fact that they are tuned to A 440 and do not sharpen during playing, also makes them ideal for playing with other instruments. The volume of most Border pipes is a perfect match for music sessions, indoors/outdoors/in the pub! These factors are making them now the Scottish pipes of choice for playing in traditional music groups, and also in sessions.
