1930 Starcks Set 1
Another set purchased and then on sold by George Hannah. I've played this set, and the other set of 1930 Starcks he had for sale. Very nice tone, easy to reed and quite steady. A big sound from the chanter is a must, and I found the bass drone really lifted the top hand. From George's notes: "These pipes were purchased from a Queensland Pipe Band looking to upgrade their band sets. This set is African Blackwood with Nickel ferrules and imitation ivory. The wooden case is solid and well made."
Here are images of these pipes:
