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.

Bore Oil

CODE: A-015

Pipers' Choice
Bagpipe Bore Oil - Pipers' Choice Bore Oil contains a special preservative to help prevent cracking and warping of the bagpipe due to excessive dryness or over-absorption of moisture. Comes in a 1.25 oz. bottle and should be used occasionally to keep the internal bores of your wood bagpipes in good condition. This can also enhance drone tone due to smoother bores. To be applied with cotton drone and chanter brushes.

Chanter Brush

CODE: A-013

Pipers' Choice
Chanter Brushes allow you to clean the chanter bore which can collect a great deal of sediment that if allowed to build up, diminishes the bore and changes the pitch. The absorbent cotton brushes are 17" long with 9" of tapered cotton specifically designed for the chanter. This brush is also used in the application of Bagpipe bore oil.

Drone Brush

CODE: A-012

Pipers' Choice
Drone Brushes are 17" long with a 9" absorbent cotton tip to remove moisture from the drone after playing. The soft cotton will not scratch the wood and can be washed out when soiled. This brush is also used in the application of Bagpipe bore oil.

Practice Chanter Bristle Brush

CODE: A-012 A

Pipers' Choice
Practice Chanter Brush - Allows you to clean the sediment from the inside of the bore of the practice chanter, and the throat of a pipe chanter. The brush also allows you to clean out small finger holes in the pipe and practice chanter.

Chanter Stock Cover

CODE: A-042

Pipers' Choice
This Chanter stock cover is used to protect the reed when you remove the chanter from your bagpipe after playing. By doing so the reed is protected and will not absorb moisture from the pipe bag when you are not playing. This enhances the life of the reed and makes set up time shorter when blowing down your pipes.

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.
