Jon Swayne Pastoral Pipes detail

Here you can find out about the instruments I make and how to place an order, and related information such as fingering charts, maintenance advice, reedmaking instructions and so on.

You can also buy, listen to and download my albums and music.

Since 1981 I have been a full-time instrument maker in the workshop at my home in the village of Baltonsborough, Somerset in the south-west of England, within sight of Glastonbury Tor. 

Mike York has been working  with me part-time since 2000. He lives in the nearby village of West Pennard, where he also has his own workshop. You can find more about us here.
We aim to make instruments which sound and look beautiful, are friendly to play, reliable and require little maintenance.
We supply bagpipes and whistles to musicians from all over the world, from professionals to beginners.
