• WW1-era ebony Henderson, ivory caps, nickel ferrules

    If you’re looking classic ebony-Hendersons without all the expensive bling, this may be your set.

    This Henderson set is ebony, likely made between 1910 and 1925, with nickel ferrules and and new ivory caps. The caps were originally worn and chalky casein, but it was just been replaced with elephant ivory from a 1950s ornamental tusk.

    The pipes play a robust, rich and very steady Henderson tone.

    All drone pieces are original and in perfect shape. The stocks are all replacements, made with ebony and with matching nickel ferrules. Though the stocks may look brown in the photos, they will darken up to match the wood in the drones.

    The pipes have been refinished. This is a very sweet set of early Hendersons.
