Competetive Record

Atherton instruments can be found on the shoulder of some of the best players in the world. From World Champion Pipe Majors to Gold Medal winning soloists my instruments have been chosen for their outstanding tone and workmanship.

I don't have the time to track every prize won with my instruments but I am aware of some as I am often contacted by pipers after they've won. Shown below is just a sample of those victories.
