Re: Check out these bagpipes

You know...if you put the plans/how-to up on your site for a "download" fee, I bet a bunch of folks would buy them (I know I would)

Re: Stolen Henderson Pipes...

I can't even imagine what the chain of custody/statute of limitations on that situation must have been. That's a hell of a story!

Re: Another eBay Curiosity

I especially like the large wooden paddle keys on the inside chanter. I wonder if that give you an extended range...or if you play them with your wrist like on Uilleann pipes.
