Congratulations to Andrew Wilson who was the very lucky winner of the David Naill DN5 bagpipes. Below is a photo of Andrew with the pipes taken after the announcement.
The bagpipes were truly magnificent. We had them on display for most of the day and many people commented on how great they looked. Also in the raffle was a cash prize of £250 which was won by Hugo Dickson. We hope the winners enjoy their prizes!
A special thanks to David Naill for donating the beautiful set of pipes. Below is a bit more information about the bagpipes taken from the David Naill website:
The DN5 model comes in African Blackwood with hand engraved Sterling silver. The styling of this “half silver” set is the epitome of the classic bagpipe look. Everything about this set is top quality, and the hand-cut silverwork is superb. All the hand engraved ferrules, slides, ring caps and mouthpiece tube, plus imitation ivory projecting mounts, make this set a bagpipe to cherish forever. We exclusively use .925 Sterling silver for this model. This model is available in both A and B upgrades to full Sterling silver mounts.
