I'd love to hear about your new Gaita. I play a Seivane granadilla set in C with roncon and ronqueta. I'm curious how much affect the cocobolo has on the tone on the chanter. Do the drones have cane or synthetic reeds? Like one of the other forum members, I plan to order a Gaita in G.

Cocobolo is a lovely wood for bagpipes. I can't really comment on these so far, but my uilleann pipes are from cocobolo and mopane and they sound terrific. The reeds are cane but she also sent me a synthetic one for the big drone. There is a gaita in G up on ebay right now look here]

Hi guys,
New user here, so I thoght I'd start by posting some pictures of my gaita :)
Its made by Victor Félix and Mário Estanislau (Portugal).

Its made from granadilla and the ring caps are frictioned boxwood.

They usually make male bagpipes (as is this one) but they are quite flexible in their options :).

This is a custom order as it has two tenor drones (no high drone) in addition to the the standard bass. Asked it this way because it sounds (if opened) similar to the GHB ;)

Coincidently, I'm using Scottish synthetic inverted drone reeds on all drones (not quite as good as Seivane's Seipal but cheaper and better than standard plastic) and a very nice Henriquez chanter reed.

Its in C but I'm currently thinking of getting an A chanter as I love its low tone :)

I like the two tenor drones! Those must make the gaita sound really full. I think a low A or even a G chanter would sound good with drones in C. :)
