• Kron, Heritage bores, silver and aged imitation ivory

    SOLD – This set was made by Dave Atherton at C. E. Kron in 2003. The bores are Kron’s ‘Heritage,’ copied from a 1912 silver and ivory Henderson. The profiles are not Heritage, and seem to more closely resemble the Kron standard set.  The pipes are unique in one way:  the previous owner sent them the the David Naill company in England to have their aged imitation ivory mounts replace the originals.  The effect is quite stunning.

    The pipes were in immaculate shape when I received them. They come with a Kron blackwood pipe chanter.

    I played the pipes for about 30 minutes with my Canning reeds and they locked in very steadily with a full, bright tone.
