What’s a good beginner’s bagpipe?

Hello all!

I have recently (as in over the past months-year) undertaken learning the highland bagpipes. I already play many other instruments that I felt would cross over (the recorder, penny whistle, clarinet) but opted to start with a practice chanter. While I still have room for improvement, I would like to start transitioning to the actual full instrument now.

As with all things, I am sure you get what you pay for, but what is a reasonable instrument that the average college student could afford?

I am not really in a place where I can buy a $3000 setup (or even close), but have heard enough Amazon pipe horror stories to last a lifetime and scare me straight.

Is there an in between option that anyone recommends?
