Welcome to the homepage of Willie McCallum Piping, owned and operated by Willie McCallum. This business was established in July 2007 to coincide with the launch of the new McCallum Solo Chanter (McC²) designed by myself and Stuart McCallum of McCallum Bagpipes.
I specialise in selling the full range of bagpipe products manufactured by McCallum Bagpipes in Kilmarnock, Scotland.
I don't just sell chanters to solo players. My services are both for pipers and pipe bands and also have experience of setting up pipe bands with McCallum pipe band chanters.
My aim is to provide you with the quality instrument your piping deserves. Buying a bagpipe is a major financial outlay and I can provide the expert advice and personal service that you need to make an informed purchase.
There are many variables in buying and setting up your instrument and I will take care to ensure your instrument is as customised to your needs as is possible, both in terms of the sound and the look. Each bagpipe or solo chanter will be tested and played by me personally before it reaches you.
For more than 30 years I have been involved in playing at the highest levels either in the solo world or in pipe bands. In all that time I have strived for the best possible tone and have learned from some of the greatest pipers and pipe majors the world has seen.
Whether you are a solo player, pipe band player, or a pipe band you have the opportunity of tapping into the ability and experience gained over that time. Combine that with the personal touch I consider to be vitally important and you have a unique combination.
Please contact me in order to discuss any requirements you have.
Thanks for visiting and please come back and check for updates.
Good luck and above all enjoy your piping.
