In 2018 we celebrated 150 years of Peter Henderson Bagpipe making. To mark this historic occasion we created a unique set of Heritage Bagpipes paying tribute to the Henderson tradition. An instrument of the highest quality to play and pass onto the next generation.
Peter Henderson Heritage Bagpipes are made from African Blackwood, instrument grade boxwood and nickel with a unique laser etched thistle design. The projecting mount profile is based upon a 1910 set which are more refined in comparison to those of the 1920’s. The boxwood we have carefully selected is rated first grade and polishes to a high natural lustre providing a beautiful contrast to African Blackwood. Using state of the art software we have created a unique thistle design with a level of detail that can only be achieved with laser etching.
“The Peter Henderson Heritage pipes look and sound great. The engraving is impressive and the grain in the boxwood mounts make the pipes look very authentic. The tone is very full and sonorous with a deep resonant bass and overall they have a very warm and resonant sound. I really enjoyed playing them at Winter Storm this year.”

Peter Henderson Bagpipes are the most sought after instrument in the world. Their unique sound and tonal qualities ensure Pipers of all abilities aspire to own a set of Henderson bagpipes.
Our Blackwood bagpipes feature an innovative plastic lining system in the blowpipe and blowpipe stock which protects the inside of the wood from the stresses and strains caused by moisture.
Each Set comes with it's own unique number engraved on the Bass Stock.
One of the longest standing pipemakers of the 20th century, the Peter Henderson name is synonymous with great tone. From 1880 until 1973, the Henderson shop on Renfrew Street in Glasgow was a hub for top pipers. Ironically Peter Henderson himself was only part of the business for about 20 years when he died in 1902
Peter Henderson was born on 14 November 1851 at Inverkeithing, Fife and his company, Peter Henderson Limited, founded in 1868. Henderson was Pipe Major of the Glasgow Volunteers and won the marches at the Northern Meeting, 1884. He also published music, some of which was his own, such as the Henderson’s Collection 1888.
