Re: Ear protection recommendations for the band circle

As a drummer, Etymotic's rock! I've used the ER-20's for years.

Re: Pipe Band Drumming vs Other Style

I'm not surprised by the result, it's comparatively easy to have 2 snares in time with each other, it's much harder to do so when you have 7. Never mind the other drums.

As for the Old Guard...

Re: Reeds Suggestions

Just curious, have you discussed this with your current instructor? What's their suggestion?

Re: It's Been a Decade, any Hints on Getting Back in Piping?

Stafford, VA, puts you about 45 minutes from D.C. I'm sure that folks from the City of Washington Pipe Band would be able to point you to a good teacher in your area.

Re: Balmoral not acceptable?

Was it a competition sanctioned by the EUSPBA? IF so, EUSPBA rules clearly and specifically state on page 19 that "male competitors must wear a hat", but there's no description of said hat. :shrug:...

Re: He visits Isle of Wight Games

What if I played JK's score for HW? Or more likely, a score written by someone much less well-known but who's score also fits the tune? How is the judge supposed to decide how well it fits the tune?...

Re: He visits Isle of Wight Games

Some associations do allow for the use of recorded pipe music in lieu of a live piper, but the couple of times I've seen it done it just looked..... odd / weird / wrong / gauche IMHO :willy:

Re: He visits Isle of Wight Games

Because the drumming is supposed to fit the pipe music and without the piper, the drumming just becomes a drum salute since there's no pipe music to hear.

And be careful when you get back home here in the U.S.: you might find yourself wanting to drive on the wrong side of the road at times. :willy::doh::grin:

I thought the first rule of Pipe Bands is, as explained to me in explicit detail by a piper (I'm a drummer): *******G BLOW TONE!!!

Best statement thus far. Walks are long, and drums are heavy.

Also, don't let the excitement get you carried away so that you drive up the tempos to anything resembling a sprint - it's easy to...
