Last night was great - your role was the absolute key to success - our team will be talking about the evening for years to come - I saw the Coldstream Guard in person when I was 14 years old and from that day forward the sound of the pipes never fails to stir my soul.

Thank you!

Vintage Pipes?

Let's get neglected bagpipes back into the hands of the next generation.  Let's get old bagpipes sounding great again!

Have a set of vintage pipes in your attic, garage, or cellar?  Wondering what to do with them?  Wondering if they are able to be restored, or if they are even worth restoring?  Please contact me and I'll try and find out an answer for you.

You may call or text me at 402-217-8170 to get the conversation started.  Better yet, send an email through the "Contact" page of this website and we can establish an email correspondence about what you have and what you'd like to do with your old pipes.  I buy vintage pipes at a fair price.  I can also get most pipes in playable condition for you.

If you have an old practice chanter, let me know.  I buy practice chanters, too.  My students are needing and looking  for practice chanters.

If you are nearby and want to bring them in, I'll take a look at them.  I am based in Lincoln, Nebraska.

From time to time I'm invited into schools to introduce the Highland Bagpipe to music students.  In early November, 2017, I had the enjoyable opportunity to work with students in Giltner, Nebraska, and made a day of it by Piping at their Veterans Day Celebration.
