Welcome to Acoustic Music.RO..
Sorry for beeing totaly uninformed, but what kind of instruments is featured in a pipe band? Bagpipes, smoking pipes.. :shock: ~ I'm sure I should know... it might even be called something completely diffrent here on the oposit side of the globe..
Anyway, a pair of quality OMNI mikes is always a good starting point of any kind of band/orchstra recording. And if You've got a grand, grand mike cabinet to borrow from, I suggest a pair of Neumann M150.. Wonderful things to play with!
