New Zealand Bagpipe Co.

Mission Statement

To repair, restore and manufacture bagpipes that are of a quality equal to anything available, in a manner that honours the skill of the master pipe-makers of the past.

Bagpipe Repairs

Modern adhesives and tools have helped increase the quality of our repairs. We often see previously repaired cracks opening up again, and repaired tuning pins resulting in uneven bore surfaces.  We use musical instrument grade African Blackwood and imitation ivory plastic (with grain) for all repairs.

Bagpipe Restoration

We remove the old coatings from old bagpipes, check drones for steadiness and tone. Buff ivory and refinish woodwork.
