What’s a good beginner’s bagpipe?
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?
