In designing the Strathmore Bagpipe, Murray Henderson used his years of experience to create an instrument that would perform, for him, at the highest level. It was Murray's belief that if he could meet this standard, and his own level of expectation in a musical instrument, that he would have created a bagpipe for himself and all pipers.This instrument is of the highest quality to be played at the premier solo events. Since their creation, Murray has played a full set of Strathmore Bagpipes in every competition. In 2006, Murray won the Clasp at the Northern Meeting, an event which is regarded as the world's most pretigious piobaireachd competition, playing a full set of Strathmore Bagpipes.


Selecting a bagpipe can be a daunting task. Murray Henderson ensures all pipers receive a special and personalised service. He will discuss every aspect of your instrument, ensuring that your bagpipe is tailored to your requirements. Contact Murray by phone, or email and he will give you the benefit of his experience to assist you in choosing the perfect instrument. Murray is also available for Skype consultations.
