Re: Engraved Drone Shield?

I have a silver shield on my MacLellan bass. It simply says "For / Mike Lynch / MacLellan Bagpipes / 2010" where the / is a new line.

Re: MacLellan Cocobolo Solo Chanter?

DO IT!!! I have an ABW MacLellan chanter for my Cocobolo pipes and wish I had gotten a Cocobolo one. All of Roddy's chanters rock. Our band plays his delrin chanters. They are very well-balanced...

Re: Hav3mg never owned GHB, what do mounts feel like?

It depends on what the mounts are made of. Most of the imitation ivory mounts feel like plastic. My moose antler mounts feel like bone. Wood mounts feel like wood. :grin:

Re: First set of pipes part II: Poly/McCallum Acetyl VS. AB

Patrick's guesses sound pretty good to me. I'm not sure about the first pipe, but I would guess the second pipe is your poly Dunbar. The third pipe does sound like a Naill to me or possibly a Glen.

Re: Lip Lock/Tired Jaw

In addition to practice and spending time on your pipes, something that has helped me is the Reed Wrangler (http://www.reedwrangler.net/mouthpiece.htm). As you can see from their web site, this...

Re: Can anybody make a Youtube of Naill Poly pipes?

Nicely done! One of my bandmates has a set of poly Dunbars and they always sound fantastic. New players keep forgetting that so much of how a pipe sounds has to do with proper setup and playing. ...

Re: What's the cheapest for Naill all-poly pipes?

Wow. Blackwood is too much maintenance? Maybe piping really isn't what you should be doing. I'm not trying to be cruel, but any setup will require some degree of maintenance. I play two stands of...

Re: I have a chance to buy these MacLellans

From a very happy MacLellan piper...GRAB THEM. I actually like the MacLellan solo chanter with the pipes. Our band is using the MacLellan delrin chanter.

Re: Rocket drone reeds

I love the sound of Rocket reeds in my MacLellan pipes. As a matter of fact, I ordered a second set of reeds back at the beginning of the year just in case something happened. These reeds are so...

Re: Glaucoma of the Eye & Bagpiping

Re: Switching to oval mouthpiece.

I'm with DannyBoy2K. I use the Reed Wrangler on all my pipes. It can be easily cut to fit since the tubing is rubber. The mouthpiece itself is very wide and flat...extremely comfortable for piping...

Re: Moose valve only, or with MCS?

Evan, I would give the Moose valve a try by itself. I play a Gannaway bag and have never use a MCS with this setup. I seat my Moose valve about as deeply as I can so that it becomes a water trap. ...

Re: Moose Valve and Cocobolo Blow pipe stock

How are those pipes sounding, Johnnie? Just curious as to what reeds you have in the drones. I'm using custom Rockets and the pipes just about play themselves. Very air-efficient. Enjoy!

Re: Moose Valve and Cocobolo Blow pipe stock

Kirby, just FYI, Roddy's blowpipes are lined with a sleeve (at least mine is).
