Brandon Brooks Pipes, USA
Brandon Brooks lives in Georgetown, KY, USA. His background in the arts ranges across the spectrums of visual, theater and especially music. He was a music major in percussion at the University of Kentucky.
Brandon has played and taught percussion since graduating from UK and worked in the music instrument industry for several companies. Being the tinkerer that he is, Brandon first learned to do repair work on drums and eventually started building them.
After moving back to KY from Nashville, TN, Brandon sold custom clothing for about 8 years and now utilizes his understanding of color and coordination in his pipe designs and finishes. It was around this time he took up pipe smoking as a remembrance of his grandfather, as many a pipe smoker does.
The tinker mind kicked in and Brandon decided "I bet I can make one". It was really ugly, just a dog. He usually won't show it to anyone. He keeps it around as a reminder of where he started. He swears he cannot emphasize enough how awful it is.
He has been making pipes since early 2007 but around 2012 decided to really dig in and become serious with the craft. Brandon is inspired by the works of Bruce Weaver, Trever Talbert, Pipe Volpe, Nate King, and Michael Lindner.
Brandon Brooks Pipes has two lines/design: Brandon Heath and B2 (Be Square). In his own words the Brandon Heath pipes are the more traditional design and the B2 is the "rock and roll" designs.
