Each pin measures 1.5″ tall and comes with a pair of secure rubber pin backs. The pins are hand filled, so there may be some variation from pin to pin. A customer favorite!
An instrument as Scottish as kilts, whisky, haggis and Loch Ness, the bagpipes likely originated in other parts of the world. One origin suggests that a sculpture of bagpipes appear on a Hittite slab in Anatolia, dated back to the 10th century BC. In the British Isles, Geoffrey Chaucer mentions the pipes in his seminal work, The Canterbury Tales (c1380 AD):
A baggepype wel coude he blowe and sowne, /And ther-with-al he broghte us out of towne.
Scottish bagpipes first appear in histories of the Highlands during the Battle of Pinkie in 1547. The author notes that pipes replaced trumpets on the battlefield.
