REPAIRS AND REFURBISHING

Bagpipe Services Australia can rejuvenate your bagpipes using traditional techniques to enhance both the sound and appearance of the instrument without sacrificing its character. 

 

We can also repair all parts of the instrument using a combination of original materials together with modern techniques as appropriate.
