Re: A real bitey blower

Electrical shrink tube works great and I have been using it since day one. It works awesome on drone reeds in place of hemp, never a problem!

Re: Drone tuning Walsh poly small pipes

Hi all,

Re: An ABW Pipe Chanter Question

Probably because "Daddy did it that way" is my guess. People use all manor of harsh things to clean goo off and actually bore oil works great but I won't say who uses it but l'll get the popcorn out...

Re: Chanter replace/complement Starck drones

Hi all,


I have used the same Canning for the last 10 years and have had 0.0 problems they are idiot proof! Having said that next reeds I buy might just be Kinnairds or a combination!
