Re: Outlander tartans

That’s what I was thinking!

If they own the rights to the tartan and wannabe Claires want it . . . $$$.

Oh, and nice post, Mr. Cook. I’m sorry that I missed you at Pleasanton.

Re: First set of pipes ordered!

Exciting! I inherited my pipes, so I didn’t have to fret over whist to buy, but I also didn’t have the anticipation of new pipes. It’s like Christmas!

Re: Hugh MacCallum on Practicing

Yep.

But also, any practice is better than no practice. Not all of us can get on the pipes as often as we'd like. Even 5 minutes a day on a practice chanter will keep the fingers going if...

Re: OK, Who Knew?

It’s shocking when someone famous is competent as part of our little community. It can’t hurt our instrument when it’s played well on a big stage.

I wouldn’t buy them unless I really wanted the chanter and got it for the appropriate price. Too many red flags. There’s no guarantee that the chanter belongs to the drones and it’s not uncommon for...

Re: Quick question (National Anthem on pipes)

Don’t let them talk you into it. Just tell them—honestly—that the anthem will not fit the scale of the pipes. It cannot and will not sound good on the pipes and will not do justice to the anthem....
