Re: Substitute Walsh Shuttle reeds

I've never heard of someone doing this before- sounds cool, do you happen to have a video/audio clip? I'd love to hear 'em!

Re: Surgery for "Trigger Finger"

Mine locks, too. If I can, "pop," or, "crack," the knuckle before playing, it's fine, but it gets locked-up again fairly quickly.

I also cannot, "tap," birl fast enough. When I am playing and can...

Re: finishing reeds for jewelry

My first try would be a dip in clear varnish.

Great idea, by the way- I love it! Post some pictures, if you can, at some point!

I just wear some rubber-sole Dockers dress shoes with a gel insert, they've been great for me!

Re: Hide bag 'loss' when tying in

The Ganaway hide bag I've been using for nearly 14 years has leather fringe at the tie-in point, so if there's any loss to the bag dimensions it's surely very, very minimal.

My guess would be...

Re: Stitch a Bag in Home will work?

If you've got the time, tools, etc then I'd totally suggest you go for it! It'd be a very useful experience and a lot of fun, I'm sure.

Re: Smallpipes

I played a McCallum set once and they played easy and sounded great.

I own some Walsh and they are also great... I vote: you'll probably be very happy either way. But that's just me.

Re: Using an easy reed with band/marching

I would certainly recommend finding a reed in-between the two, that's not so hard nor so easy.

In the meantime, you might do one of these two things:

-Be careful to strike-in on, "high A," on...

[emoji23] my goodness! This thread is a gold mine! I'm going through our band's music files tight now to change the titles on all our music!

Re: Did I Read That Right?

Ha! Both would have real merit... I think the Barbarian would fit right in at a lot of the Tinkers' shows!

Re: Hardie Twist Trap Practice Pipes

I have a set of these: http://www.pipingpal.com/Mobile/practice-pipes-standard-c2x14727068

They play fine, and the chanter is my favorite PC.

This new set, the twist trap set, looks to me like...

Re: Ebay pipes again

At first, I thought they looked legit, but some of the close-ups made me think they look like they're MIME.

Re: After playing with a cold

If it were me, I'd expect the bag to be fine. If I'm not mistaken, the Ganaway seasoning includes disinfectants that should take care of the germs in the if it was so recently seasoned.

That's...

Re: Tuning a Band to Concert Bb

Great question. Short of Bb chanters, there may be a few options. In any case I wouldn't worry about drones, just some minor tuning pin and tuning slide adjustments can get your drones to concert Bb,...

Re: Bass drone cutting out

Those are definitely great pipes.

I believe the aversion to changing the reeds around is wise, so I'd only mess with smallpipe reeds after careful consideration- but for me, personally, I have an...

Re: What price should I ask for my pipes?

My gut/knee-jerk reaction is $1200-$1400, but maybe it'd be wise to post them somewhere in that range and be ready to settle for as low as $950. I don't think you'd need to accept an offer lower than...
