SILVER BAGPIPE MOUNTS

BY DAVID DAVIDSE of TRUEHAND ENGRAVING

Truly a Master Craftsman, David Davidse has been engraving silver for pipes for a number of years, and his line of patterns is unique among makers today. David is the ONLY engraver exclusively offering HAND ENGRAVED pieces for bagpipes as his standard line, and his work is of a higher quality than any other pipe silver on the market. While some makers turn cast silver onto pipe sections and then engrave over the turning marks, David's mounts are hand formed from sheet and wire.

We currently offer Truehand Silver for refurbished pipes, and it is available on JWM, Dunbar, and Inveran bagpipes, as well as remounting your own pipes; if you're interested in any of his patterns, or want a special pattern done, please contact us at pipey@cuillinn.com or call us at 510-569-1689.
