ePipesDrones is a tunable, authentic sounding set of Scottish Highland, Border Pipes, and Smallpipes drones.

This app is for musicians who are learning to play the Scottish bagpipes and want high-quality sets of tunable drones to play along with on their practice chanters.

The sounds are provided by ePipes.co.uk in Glasgow, Scotland, from extremely high-fidelity studio recordings of three very fine instruments.
