Northumbrian Smallpipes Fettling, Repairs and Replacement Parts

Do your Northumbrian Pipes need fettling or new reeds or repairs? Are they leaking, squeaking and misbehaving? Get in touch to discuss how I can help you get your Northumbrian Pipes back to top playing condition.

Northumbrian Smallpipes can suffer from neglect. If unused for some time joints may start to leak, reeds might harden and leather can become porous. Key pads might leak or even fall off. All of this means that they might be very difficult or impossible to play.

Accidents can happen too. Reeds might split or parts break, but fortunately most things can be repaired or replaced.

If you are having problems with your pipes I can examine them and let you know the work required to bring them back to play at their best.

Do you want to adjust your own reeds, or is your bag old and starting to leak?  If you'd like some self-help advice check out the FAQ's page for instructions on some fettling jobs you can do yourself.
