McCallum AB3DE African Blackwood BagpipesThe AB3DE is a great classic-looking set that utilizes mostly imitation ivory. However, engraved alloy is used on the tuning slides and ornaments the projecting mounts as part of the "deluxe" option.The aluminum alloy that McCallum uses doesn't tarnish and isn't plated. AB3s come with an adjustable (polypenco) blowstick that will fit any player and won't crack due to moisture. McCallums are made in Scotland.
Two Awesome Features on All McCallum Bagpipes:
- McCallum's New Alloy (If you have plating on your pipes, that is) - this is a great material that never tarnishes, keeping your pipes always looking like silver! Check out the pictures, and imagine a set of pipes that always look like that!
- Threaded Hemp Retainers - you can see these on the picture that all McCallum pipes have a "hemp retainer," or "stop," that keeps the hemp from coming off the end of various joints. A great treat for pipers who are more familiar with other sets.
