The Completely Unofficial Brigham Pipes Shape Chart v0.1 Beta Release

Here it is, folks – the first draft of the Brigham Pipes Shape Chart!

Note that is really is a DRAFT release, compiled in large part from my own collection, submissions from other Brigham owners, and a few old catalogs. There are still a great many gaps to fill to complete the project, so if you have one of the “missing Brighams” in your rack, it would be great if you could send a quick email and a couple of pictures of your pipe to TheBrighamProject@gmail.com to include in the Shape Chart.

Speaking of pictures, I am still working on a convenient way to embed or link a picture of each pipe shape to its corresponding line entry in the chart. Someone (either me or WordPress) is being a bit obtuse about the technicalities of such a feat, but I am confident that I will prevail in the end. Until then, these spreadsheet images will have to suffice.

A Note Regarding Pipe Names: Early Brigham pipes were advertised by name instead of shape number. When the now-familiar three-digit series/shape codes were introduced, pipes were identified by both name and shape number. By 1980 pipe names had been dropped, leaving the series/shape number as the sole identifier.

Names included in the Shape Chart are only those which I can verify were assigned by Brigham. Pipe shapes introduced after about 1980 will have no official name.

Updates, amendments and other improvements will be made to the Chart as they become available, so stay tuned!

Many thanks to my fellow contributors:  Andrew Colman, Ian Campbell, & Ryan Thibodeau.

And finally, if you’d like to read through the Chart offline, I’ve made a downloadable PDF file available HERE. 

Until next time, Happy Piping!
