Re: Cullen Anderson-The Lars Sloan

I don't know the answer to your question, but I want to say that I love that tune.

Re: Kilgour Edinburgh pipes

Same here. There are always at least two sides to a story and sometimes more. Just to be clear, Sandy was not upset with George. Sandy said he paid for George's return to Scotland after George's...

Re: Kintail gone or not?

I can tell you, absolutely not. Mark did patent later designs, but the horse left the barn already on his revolutionary design that he didn't. That is one of his regrets.

Re: Posting disappears

I see your post in Pipe Bands from earlier today and this post. What do you mean "disappear"?

The only time posts don't appear—or disappear—are in the Trading Post (require manual approval) or if...

Re: Kintail gone or not?

That was my first exposure to Kintail pipes. A bandmate had a set and had an assortment of problems, such as the mounts falling off. I can't speak to the majority of sets, of course, just my...

Re: Drone reed price rise

You see, those reeds were personally played by the Bobs of Balmoral and blessed by St. Pope John Paul II before he died. They were also kissed by the Queen on two separate occasions.

Re: How do you know that you ready to teach?

I think it’s a given that an instructor should be able to play all embellishments properly. If they can’t, they have no business teaching. That said, all instructors don’t have to be pro level...

Re: How do you know that you ready to teach?

I'd like to double up on what Michael (EquusRacer) said. Being able to change up how you are instructing something so that your student "gets it" is key. Is it slowing it down? Is it showing it to...

Re: Archy J, India’s 1st Pro Female Bagpiper

Re: Bag on 1970 Lawrie pipes?

The bag she has is not a synthetic or hybrid. It leaks, but she loves the shape and size so was hoping to figure out the make so she can buy another . . . if the maker is still in business!
