Re: WarMac Pipe Chanters

If memory serves, I first started seeing them in the early 80's particularly with the Regimental Pipe bands.

Re: Heat threshold for ABW Pipes?

You're tempting fate if you continue to play ABW in those extreme conditions..get a set of plastics as the OP did..friendly advice.

Welcome to the season of cracked Pipes...St. Patrick's Day and all manner of parades, gigs, etc that can be pure havoc on wood.

Re: Iíve met my threshold and itís 15 degrees

Below 45F, it's the MaCallum plastic Pipes only...in the very low temps it's the fingers and reeds that go...short blasts only...no time for a concert...folks that are paying the Piper should be told...

Re: Remove shine from your Prince Chas lapels

Perhaps consider applying a new layer of satin or other appropriate material to the lapels...I've done it with other jackets using fabric glue...not so hard....or, a light wiping of black shoe polish.

Re: Moose vs Naill Tube- Observations

Seems that you are playing far too long on those funeral gigs, especially in those conditions..a tune as the casket goes in and out and a couple of tunes at the cemetery is sufficient..no need to do...

Re: Electronic Chanter Amp / Speaker Recommendations

This is the one I use..it's actually a micro cube..I can't speak to any battery issues as I always use the power cord but I see them being used by buskers with battery power everywhere....

Re: Canmore Hybrid bags

Been playing the large size Canmore hybrid bag now for a few weeks as well...simply superb..big effect on steadiness and intonation compared to the old Bannatyne I had on there..highly recommend.

Re: Tying in a new bag

Why not just have someone who is experienced do it while you watch...won't cost much but the bag will if you mess it up.

Re: Help Improving Band Tuning

Sounds like most bands around NY/NJ also...invest in reeds, chanters, check bags for leakage, work on strike ins.
