Re: Geico commercial with pipes

I think the shower and bedroom piper is Scott MacDonald, former PM of the LA Scots. I'm not used to him with a beard though! Not sure about the others...

Re: So this is what the wait feels like... (new pipes)

What? You mean all reeds aren't exactly all the same? :lol:

What shop did you work in that carried Hardies, Richard?

Re: Nigel Richard R.I.P

Nigel was a maker, is that correct? The name is familiar.

Condolences to his family and friends.

So this is what the wait feels like... (new pipes)

Murray Huggins is making me a set of silver engraved Colin Kyo pipes. Every set that I've owned have been used sets: the pipes I inherited from my grandfather, assorted sets that passed through my...

Re: "Scottish" DNA results for native-born Scots

For all the ambiguity of genes, my Ancestry DNA test came back about as spot-on as could be expected . . . clearly Irish, German, Italian—all relatively recent immigrants (19th & 20th century)—plus...

Re: Alt Pibroch Club?

That is good news. So many websites are lost when the owner passes away. Thanks go to Barnaby.

Re: Need help getting a seal

It it's particularly bad, I remember someone mentioning years ago that he'd modified a snorkel mouthpiece to help keep a seal to the blowpipe.

Re: Need help getting a seal

Another vote for giving the Reed Wrangler Ergonomic Mouthpiece a try. I love mine, it really helps keep a proper seal.

Re: Fondly remembered gigs?

My instructor called me to take a gig he couldn't take. It was a funeral arranged by local family he knew. The funeral turned out to be for a man whom had arranged a trip to Ireland years before that...

Re: Piper in The Crown Season 4

This reminds me of Lorne Cousin touring with Madonna with a kilt that was down below his knees . . . Lorne no doubt questioned the length of the kilt he was asked to perform in, but in the end, it...

Re: Changing birl style

I played the tap and pull for a number of years. It was never quite as fast as it should have been. About 5-6 years into my piping, a judge noticed it at a workshop and recommended that I try a...

Re: Groped by women when performing?

Just to be clear, I didn't post the topic in jest. Some guys are fine with such "attention", but others aren't so keen to have hands up their kilts or private parts photographed. I fall into the...

Re: Cutting The Tip Off Reeds

Re: The Universe of Bagpipes?
