End of Piping Times and Piping Today.

Some sad news, both the Piping Times and Piping Today have ceased publication.

Re: Help - how to fix bellows valve?

I can only speak for my experience with my poly Kinnear set, but the inlet was fixed with yellow hemp and I was able to twist it off with little effort.
The flap valve was over 20 years old and...

Re: Yet another pipe ID Logan???

The usual practice over here when someone is jailed for paedophilia is to erase them.
This happens in the entertainment industry, films are shredded, tapes wiped, records destroyed, and a lot of...

Re: Pipe ID

And they never intend to play an F. What's that chanter stopped with? Putty?
Some aspects make me think Glens, the thin seamed ferrules, drumhead tops with flat bush, but who knows. Really dirty...

Re: Yet another pipe ID Logan???

Alan Logan made pipes from the 80s through to the 2000s. Little is said about him because he is a convicted criminal and the piping world turned it's back on him....

Re: Gordon Walker

To be fair, John, it's not breaking any forum rules.
It's a difficult subject, yes, and, to be honest, I'm not happy with it surfacing again, but the responses have, (so far), been well measured and...

Moderators don't have the power to block people here and never have done. We do have the ability to close threads.
I am also surprised this thread has been resurrected. I often make comments when...

Re: Journey to Sky

If I remember correctly, (which I may not), it's in the first Michael Grey book.

Re: Goodwill Find

I've seen bottles of Bagtight made by Scott’s Highland Services of Ontario with the same label. Rob Mathieson's Pipe Box shop in Aberdeen used to sell them in the 90's, along with the Bagpipe Bore...

Re: Bagpipes Galore practice pipes?

I had a set once, but bear in mind this was quite a few years ago, more than a decade. The drones were simple lengths of brass tubing with what looked like some form of heat shrink plastic around...

Re: Samhain Bagpipes?

I was just thinking that Tam o' Shanter is set in Ayr, well into the lowlands and far from the Highlands. The poem was also written in the last quarter of the 1700's, and we have an unambiguous image...

Re: Samhain Bagpipes?

Tam o' Shanter by Burns was often read at Hallowe'en when I was at school in Aberdeenshire. It features Auld Nick piping at the witches coven, but I'd lay odds they'd be bellows pipes.

Nowadays...

Re: Who invented the bagpipes?

Re: Castle Dangerous - story behind the tune?

I always wondered what the story was behind that book. It was published by Motherwell Council, his local authority. Can't recall that happening with any other pipe books.

Re: YT Copyright Claim - Castle Dangerous

Yep. I was in a guitar band in the 80's, made several albums, got paid, band broke up, end of. CDs came out albums reissued, got paid more royalties than I ever made on the vinyl. Streaming started...

It's more likely that the OP has been caught up in an algorithm used by YouTube or Orchard Music/Orchard Enterprises. By disputing the claim, the OP might be lucky enough to deal with a human being...

Re: 20mm Drone/Stock Bores - 4,000 year old link to measurements

For those that believe them to be musical instruments, there are 3 schools of thought.
1. That they are part of an organ where the wind is provided by a bag, similar to the kind the emperor Nero is...

Re: Battle of Waterloo tune history

The first part certainly has strong similarities to the tune variously known as Bonaparte Crossing The Alps/Bonaparte’s March/Boney's March, which in turn has similarities to the possibly older...

Re: Smallpipe Drone Tuning

Depends what options the pipemaker offers. My set was made by Ross Calderwood.
My bass drone can tune to G, A and B if you put the tenor top on the bass, C if you remove the bass centre section....

Re: Who invented the bagpipes?

The only thing accurate about it is the illustration, which clearly is NOT a bagpipe.

Re: Leprechaun & Butterfly Slow Air - The Rogues

PRS Database shows it was composed by Lars Sloan, registered in Texas.
That makes it likely that it's the Texan piper Lars Sloan who also happens to be in The Rogues. You could try contacting him...
