Re: Pipe band contest 1989

I don't see a solid blue. I seem to see green mixed in with the blue.

Re: Suggestions for newer generation Technopipes

Me? I just have the one little thing I want to see the behind of - the pokey little wire cradle for the battery:mad: It's hard to get a battery cell out of it, and sometimes a little jostle and the...

Re: Paid not to play!

Yeah. You need to camp out at Highclere Castle - the Downton Abbey tea budget should be able to handle a pesky piper. Failing which, they can write you into the scene where they welcome the...

Re: eBay Scammer, BEWARE - Henderson pipes

Well, the ebay listing seems to have evaporated. At least ebay was not slow to react this time.

Re: Who makes this reed?

Exactly my thoughts too. Sounds very precocious and experienced. Good language skills to boot. Good on him!

Re: Another Ebay deal

Probably because a lot of bagpipes do not have the maker's name stamped into the wood somewhere, and it takes a practised eye to identify a set definitively. At least the seller didn't zero in on the...

Re: An interesting piece of data

I think a big factor will be the sample size. In this case, visitorship. If the number is small (sorry Calum, don't mean to imply anything), then just a small change in the demographics will skew the...

Re: Polyester thread instead of hemp = game changer!

That's interesting. To me at least, because I still do recurve archery and I've thought of using bow string material just like you say. But I'd thought it was a bit of an overkill and have never...

Re: A Gannaway bag with a zip - priming and dressing

No, not wiping it out, but putting it on, like er shoe polish I guess. Better access to seams and corners. Then, zip it back up, stopper up the stocks, and inflate bag.

A Gannaway bag with a zip - priming and dressing

Re: bagpipe prices c1950

I think you might be right. In re-reading the listing description, I can see that the seller doesn't say he is the owner; we are assuming that he is. In fact, the "it seems as though two pieces" bit...

Re: Clamptite instead of hose clamps?

Good idea this! I'll give it a go. Better than electrical tape over the irritating hex bolt head which keeps coming out after a while.

Will a rubber strip work under the cords for a tie-in bag -...
