Nate Banton began his formal pipemaking career working for a well known uilleann pipemaker in New York. After a three year apprenticeship, Nate started a pipemaking company in 2005 in a friend's basement. The basic designs for our smallpipes and Border pipes were developed there. The designs have evolved year after year increasing in quality ever since.
Smallpipes are Nate's particular specialty and he focuses his time on that half of the company.
