Re: Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

Thanks Jay. I've been playing them no longer than 10-15 minutes about every other day or every third day, though I gathered the cracks were due to the sudden bursts of moisture. I did not swab out...

Re: Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

And the blowpipe developed cracks (yes, plural) yesterday…BOO! I contacted Allistair today and he is going to make a replacement for me which should arrive in a few weeks.

Re: Pelican Case for Pipes

I've been researching this and from what I have seen the FAA does not regulate carry on size, this is done by the individual airlines. Anyone who has ever flown Ryan Air can attest.

Re: Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

So I plugged in the new Kinnaird Evolutions…then I got the idea to give Canning tenors a try with the Kinnaird bass…VERY sweet sounding combination. I need to play a bit more to check out the...

Re: Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

My instructor plugged in his Kinnaird reeds to my drones yesterday and they sounded great, particularly the bass drone. EXTREMELY air efficient. I ordered a set of Kinnaird Evolution reeds and will...

Re: Sinclair History

I don't see an additional groove, unless I just do not know what I am looking for…1950-1957 Sinclairs?

Re: Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

Scott,

I did intend to contact Allistair well in advance. I should think it would not be a long wait at the moment as he quoted 2 months for a set of pipes.

Well, I went with the vintage set. Took a ride out yesterday with my instructor and he gave them the green light. The wood is turned with flat combing and the grain is beautiful. I'll be tying in...

Re: Sinclair History

I was hoping I could get a bit of help in identifying my "new" drones.

Re: Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

Olypiper,

If going with new, I am pretty sold on Sinclair proper.



Dan,

I have similar bias' towards vintage things in general. I love the idea of a vintage set which was being played...

Re: Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

AHT,

I was actually referring to to Hugh MacPherson, who purchased W. Sinclair for a few years in the late 50's early 60's.

I am glad to hear good thoughts on Doug's pipes, as I have a set in...

Re: Which wood for mounts?

I recently spoke with Allistair Sinclair. He advised he carries holly, but cautioned that it is very soft and prone to dings and dents if not extremely careful…he seemed to like its look, but was...

Sinclair/MacPherson - vintage vs. new

Thoughts on late 50's/early 60's vintage vs. new production Sinclairs in regards to tone, steadiness, overall. I have been considering a new stand and just saw a set pop up re-listed in the trading...

Not to be too negative, but the first thing I would do is find another instructor after his comments. It is great that he can play piobaireachd, but it is not as if he is the only person to...

Re: P/M Donald MacLeod's pipe setup

In case there is any interest the pipes appear to be Grainger & Campbells...unknown chanter and reed set up, though I would imagine they are cane drone reeds.
