Duncan Soutar is a pipemaker in St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland. He's providing quality products for any piper, whether novice or professional, and we give a Soutar lifetime guarantee on our instruments.
The business was established in 1992, and since then has gone from strength to strength. There is now five employees (all pipers) who pride themselves on producing first-class merchandise, carefully designed to provide satisfaction for every customer.
His father, Andrew, the former Pipe Major of the City of St Andrews Pipe Band, winners of numerous major championships, started making pipe chanter and drone reeds, while Duncan learned the arts of woodturning and chanter-making at R. T. Shepherd and Son. At length he left there to concentrate on his own work, and now he find that things are spiraling upwards.
