For over forty years, David Naill & Company Ltd. have delivered the exceptional tonal quality sought after by the world's top players.
The "Vintage" line is new for 2020. It combines a vintage feel with a modern sound. Some features include:
- Aged imitation ivory mounts
- Small vintage projecting mounts
- Flat non-beaded caps and ferrules (flush)
- Narrower overall profile
- Subtle bass drone changes for more powerful sound
The DN2V with hand-engraved nickel is a beautiful model, showcasing exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous metalwork. Previously, engraving was only done on silver models, but the use of engraved nickel mounts allows for fantastic aesthetic details in a more affordable price range. No polishing required! All of the engraving - ferrules, slides, ring caps, and chanter band - make for a striking appearance.
A great piper needs the right combination of training, experience, and ability, the same is true of bagpipe makers. David Naill set new standards of excellence and expectation in the way bagpipes are finished — from exquisite turning and bores, precise beading and combing, to the finest hand engraved metalwork from in-house silversmiths. From early on Les Cowell diligently sought input from champion players on what makes for the best-sounding instrument. And throughout the years since, his bagpipes have been the result of the marriage of unsurpassed craftsmanship with the master player's ear — bagpipes both equal in beauty and harmonics.
Includes a two-year warranty on all bagpipe parts.
