Re: Mouthpiece For 1973 Practice Chanter

Indeed it is a Hardie, bought it from him in person and it is inscribed. PH said the mouthpiece would fit.... :-/. They're really good people so I don't want to bring it to their attention.

Re: New Canmore bag - thoughts?

Thankyou! since it comes with the bottle I'll probably just give that a try for a couple of practices and see how it goes... 900 grams isn't a huge weight addition so I'll purchase the hybrid.
