This is a list of well-known bagpipe makers. It covers both family-based and commercial outfits from the 17th century, when records began, through till the present era. In the 1950s, the bagpipe traditions of Europe were revived on the local level. Even though the market remains small and the well-known outfits in Scotland are mass-produced, the list of bagpipe makers is rising.
