3.3) Where do I get Uilleann pipes, and how much will they cost me?

Uilleann pipes are less widely available than are Highland pipes, and
therefore you may have to do a bit more searching. Some of the suppliers
listed in part 2 deal in Uilleann pipes. Alternatively, you may wish to
purchase a used set of pipes or a new set directly from a maker. Be aware that
many pipe makers (especially the better ones) have backlogs, and there may be
a long wait for a new set of pipes. As with Highland pipes, prices can vary
widely. Good-quality half sets (new) can be found for as little as $1,200 and
as much as $2,500. Practice sets may cost less, while full sets will cost a
lot more.
