Ridge Cut Reeds

Hello Everyone:

I have seen several reed makers offer reed kits for those do-it-yourselfers but they are for formed reeds. Are there any ridge cut reed kits out there??

Thanks,
Wayne

Re: Piping and Drumming Certificate - Exams

Hello Kenton:

I think your idea is wonderful. I anticipate attending the Lyon summer school next year and sit for an exam. I believe in the KIS principle, keep it simple.

Thanks for you...

Re: any good books for beginning pipers out there?

Hi:
In my humble opinion, Scott Williams has one of the absolute best instruction books on the pipes I have seen in a long time.

Check out his web site.

Re: Leaving Glen Affric

I am familiar with the tune, and love it. I don't know where the music is to be found, but if you get a lead I would surely appreciate if you pass it on to me as well.
