Ross has been involved in bagpipes since 1968, and in that
time has competed in solo
and band competitions both locally and abroad for many years.
He had the good fortune of
being taught by the great Bill Boyle whilst living in New
Zealand, and it was through the
inspiration of Bill Boyle, Donald Bain and other great pipers
that lead Geoff to take a special
interest in bagpipe tone. Geoff has a very fine ear for
tone, but it was through the frustration of
finding it so difficult to maintain a consistently high
standard of tone while playing traditional reeds
and bags, that he sought new innovative ways of achieving
Ross Bagpipe Bags Pty. Ltd. is a name that has become synonymous
with quality bagpipe bags.
In 1985 Ross Bagpipe Reeds Pty. Ltd. produced the world's
first synthetic drone reeds, and
soon after introduced the Canister Pipe Bag. Our bags and
reeds have been strongly endorsed
by soloists and bands throughout the world, and we are happy
to acknowledge that our products
have playerd a vital role in the improvement of quality
and stability in bagpipe playing, which was,
and has always been our objective..
