Re: Canmore Hybrid bags

I tie in the chanter stock on my Canmore Hybrid. Works great! I don't trust the o-ring and clamp myself. Always worried that the o-ring isn't completely sealed in the groove.

Re: Dominant Naill drones - which reeds to use?

A full set of X-Treme reeds will work well in the Naills. I find the tenors a tad quieter than Ezees with different harmonics that complement the bass well.

Re: AAaarrrgggghhhhh!!!! My bag has sprung a leak!!!

Yep...you can tape and glue all you want, but I personally wouldn't trust a repair job to last over the long term. A new Canmore Hybrid has a 2-year warranty...

Re: Canmore Hybrid bags

I think a lot more pipers will move to the Canmore Hybrid bags in the near future. A lot hear Canmore and think the floppy, green bags. The hybrid bags are a different beast.

Re: Canmore Hybrid bags

I'd say the Canmore Hybrid is the best synthetic bag out there today. Comfortable, easy to install and it breathes extremely well. No durability issues for me.

Re: Flat E on RJM Chanter

Try different reeds before you carve. Troys are good, but I've had better success with Shepherd straight cut, Husk, G1 (Platinum and copper) and Chesney in my RJM.
