Michael Dow has been a professional woodworker for well over 30 years and makes his living as a hand, architectural woodcarver. His interest in bagpipes started in 1974 and he made his first set of Scottish smallpipes and bellows around 1989. At the request of Jerry O'Sullivan a few years later, his uilleann bellows were developed.
"I needed a large-capacity bellows that would be a comfortable, dependable, efficient workhorse that would stand up to excessive wear and tear. The bellows Mike made for me is an outstanding piece of craftsmanship which is all of these things plus some. You simply cannot do better than a Mike Dow bellows."
