Pipers' Choice

Plain Yellow Hemp - Bagpipe Hemp is a staple for every piper. Hemp is used on your bagpipes, and most practice chanters. It seems like you are always having to adjust a part of your pipes, and a roll of hemp is a must in every pipers case. Having your pipes hemped-up properly is one of the most important maintenance aspects on your bagpipe. It will help with proper tuning, and air efficiency. Plain Yellow hemp is the most popular and most diverse for using on your bagpipe.

Chanter Stock Cover - Deluxe

CODE: A-042 D

Pipers' Choice
Deluxe Chanter Stock Cover - Just as the regular chanter stock cover, this one works in the same manor. The only difference in this one is the engraved design on the outside of the cylinder. Many pipers that play in either multiple pipe bands or play solo and band performances, have two or more pipe chanters in their pipe case. Having one cover different from the other helps in identifying each chanter as they can look very similar.

Pipers' Beeswax

CODE: A-032

Pipers' Choice
Beeswax - This beeswax come in a container for easy application. The beeswax helps protect the hemp from extra moisture. The extra moisture can cause swelling that makes it difficult to move the hemped areas of the bagpipes. To use, simply run the hemp through the plastic holder device. Some pipers run the beeswax over the final wrap of hemp to ensure that the parts move smoothly. To do this, you will have to remove the hemp from the container. If you prefer, you can purchase pre-waxed hemp in either black or yellow rolls. This will save you time in waxing.

Pure Beeswax

CODE: A-032 A

Pipers' Choice
This cob of pure Beeswax is used for the same application as the regular beeswax that we sell. Some people prefer the pure beeswax because it is stickier than the regular wax. Both work well on the hemped joints on the bagpipe.

Double Wax

CODE: A-033 B

Double wax is quite simply a cob of half pure beeswax and half cobblers wax. This way you will only need one cob in your pipe case, and it can be used for two different purposes. Complete with a piece of leather to use as a hand grip. This double wax cob is also formulated so that it will not melt into a black puddle in your pipe case as has been the custom in the past.
