About David

With over 25 years piping experience at Grade 1 Level, David Caldwell has played in the ranks of Field Marshal Montgomery, Strathclyde Police, 78th Fraser Highlanders and currently with ScottishPower.

The Reeds

The reed is extremely universal and can be played in most pipe chanters. The reeds are very well balanced, free to blow, have great projection and most importantly are stable.

Caldwell Reeds give me the stability and consistency of sound I demand. They have proved themselves to be reliable over and over again.
