Re: Learning Uilleann Pipes - a YouTube series

Hello Peter... I think we met a couple of years ago at Winter Storm (Leah introduced us, if I recall). You can do this. The best advice I got when I started (13 years ago) was from Richard...

Re: Selling pipes (not an ad)

Putting up sound files has always helped me with selling pipes (I've sold over 50 vintage and used sets over the years). It may be true that Kintail is not a make that is highly sought after. That...

Re: Brian Boru Revisited

Chris knows of what he speaks. The chanter I have (with 4 keys) uses "open" fingering (just take each finger off the lowest closed hole as you go up the scale). It pitches at Bb (466) and the tonic...

Re: Brian Boru Revisited

I bought this set in 2008. I didn't enjoy playing the drones because they sat too close to my left ear. This set is in the NMS now. I do have a Brian Boru keyed chanter that was just reeded for me...

Re: Brian Boru Chanter-Where to Find/maker

I have a vintage Brian Boru chanter and they are different fingering than the GHB. Starck did make a version that uses GHB fingering, but I think they are rare.... also, with keys present, you can't...

Re: Bagpipe ID

No, but it's possible that they are David Glen or Hutcheon. :)

Re: G&M drones produce Bb pitch without mods - true?

Last week I set up a new set of MacCallum pipes with Balance Tone High Resonance drone reeds and I was able to pitch them right at Bb with no extenders. The pins are tuning right at the hemp line....

Re: Brian Boru Chanter

I'm pretty sure it's Henry Starck (London), even though it's not stamped. Starck made Brian Boru chanters from around 1903 to 1962 (I think). Based on the chanter sole material, style and aging, I...

Re: So, who is your favorite Celtic Rock/Fusion Band featuring pipes?

"All Hail the Queen" in Florida has really put together a great sound! Check them out if you're into the Celtic Rock band sound.

Re: Henderson pipes?

There are some elements that make it look like it's middle east made. That would be my first guess on the maker. No one want's to hear that, I know. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Re: Playing only 2 drones: acceptable?

I knew you would know! (We talked about this once).



Oh sure I see how it is... can help it if your drummers have better ears than I do?
