I’m hoping to purchase some uilleann pipes in a few months but being a vegan it’s going to be very difficult to buy one with non-leather bellows. I know there are synthetic bags available but finding strong flexible synthetic leather bellows could be impossible. I know there are materials out there such as are made into saddles and other things but whether a bellows maker would go through the hassle of purchasing said product without knowing if it will work doesn’t seem likely.
Are there any other non bellows blown pipes in D that can be played with others in an itm session? I’m thinking worldwide.. there must be something out there.
