Martin Gallen, winner of the Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award 2014 and the 2012 R.L.O Mealy Pipemaking Scholarship and author of 'Reedmaking by Martin Gallen' proudly presents a fantastic range of high quality reeds, reed making tools, sundries, instrument cases, bellows, pipe making tools and pipe maintenance products all hand made in Ireland to the highest standard. Banba Design provide top quality reeds for any chanter without the need to send the chanter by post.

I provide practice sets, half sets, 3/4 sets and full sets email me for details martin@banbadesign.co.uk and I will also make components for existing sets and will restore or repair any set in a state of disfunction, disrepair or general disarray.

My reeds are played throughout the world and my customers are always satisfied with the results.

I custom build all hard cases for any instrument and I have a few standard pipe case sizes, if you need a specific size just let me know and I will be happy to accommodate you.  All cases are made to the highest standard and are robust and very hard wearing.
