Nope, its used as an ebony substitute mainly by stringed instrument makers. It's chocolate colored and darkens very quickly with oil. I picked up about 60 1x1x12 pieces and about 80 lignum vitae 1x1x12 pieces a while back and the stuff is nice and seasoned. A many of pipes will be made in the next couple of years in these woods.

Those look fantastic, how do they sound? What key do they play in?

They sound quite good. Here is a quick video I made. You will notice that the High A needs tuning tape, its quite sharp which is easy to tell in the video. I slapped some tape on it last night and it brought the A back into tune with the rest of the set. These pipes are using my new synthetic drone reeds.

.Are they made to the same specs as the ones that were posted on the old site? I assume its a plastic chanter reed, the noisture would kill a cane one.

Nope, these are entirely new plans. All the drones have 5/32" bores and the chanter has a 3/16" bore. The Chanter uses Fireside Smallpipe reeds and the drones use my synthetic drone reeds. I'm drawing up plans based on this set. The drones are universal Bb / A.

I'm also working on a C set in the Highland 7th, mxyolidian mode. Chanter is Bb/C/D/E/F/G/A/Bb/C with drones c/C and the fifth G. Seth
