This is an early Evans 7 key F set, approximately 30 years old and based on condition only lightly played in that time. The ‘pattern’ of this set is not as immediately recognisable as Richard and Anita’s sets produced in the last 20 years – but it is one of theirs! When the set came to me I soon had it playing and I could tell it had some quality about it but there are no makers marks. Fortunately an original initialed reed (dated 1991) was still in the chanter and when I asked Richard and Anita – they recognised the set immediately.
The key work is in the ‘Ross’ pattern and the chanter sits happily in concert F with the original reed. The drone standing parts are unmounted but each drone comes with a tuning bead which means you have a much wider choice of drone tunings. Bag and bellows are in excellent – almost as new – condition and will provide many years of service. It would also be relatively easy to fit, at some point, an interchangeable stock in the bag to take a multi-keyed chanter.
Overall, this is an excellent quality 7 key set that will provide a lifetime of playing. Set is all original, fully reeded and comes complete with bellows, bag cover and case.
