Re: Piper cuffed and roughed for playing too loud on the Royal mile!

The guy basically got himself in cuffs by trying to be some kind of street lawyer...and the friend aggravated the situation with his comments and filming ensuring that the cuffs weren't coming off...

Re: Army issue bagpipes?

I own a lovely set of circa 1950's Army Hardies that are stamped with the arrow/crow's foot on the drone slides...the Pipes were owned and purchased directly from a Pipe Major of the Argylls and his...

Re: Stuart Liddell Recital it doesn't get any better

Enjoyed every bit of this story...except the part where the Pipes were out in the car in that heat.

Re: Selling pipes (not an ad)

To my mind, the Kintails in question are certainly worth $550, if not $750...the 2 damaged mounts are inconsequential and are easily replaceable at minimal cost...if they sound like sets that I know...

Re: Army issue bagpipes?

It has been written here before I believe, that Army Pipes were assembled from boxes of individual sections, ie, bass and tenor tops and bottoms, chanters, etc, that were stored in the quartermaster...

Re: Old Henderson Tone

Agree...in their later years, say, past 1990, not all Pipes were being turned by Greig Sharp, and as a result were not consistently of high standard.

Re: Chanter Reeds for Concert Pitch Bb Chanter

Find a supplier who has the Shepherd B flat reed, which is different than their standard reed.

Re: Reeding a new Naill chanter

The older ones are notoriously flat on B and D....always needed carving..wonderful chanters though...I've found that they needed warming up of the wood to reach proper intonation...the old...

Re: Well-known pipers who play easy reeds?

Not true for some reedmakers...they make large batches as they know they will be out the,door soon enough..if they were to wait for orders to come in then they would be woefully behind and have a lot...

Re: Old Henderson Tone

Kintails of that era were most likely made by Greig Sharp, who was a turner for Henderson for many years...many including myself, have found the similarities striking...then there is the issue of the...

Re: Old Henderson Tone

A set of 1980 to early 90s Kintails would provide that sound...and can be had at reasonable prices.

Re: Well-known pipers who play easy reeds?

Some interesting replies to my earlier post ...the simplest way for me to support my assertion goes as follows...yes, reedmaker X may make excellent reeds...but let's say he has 300 freshly made...

Re: Well-known pipers who play easy reeds?

You may doubt it all you like...but if you believe the top bands on Glasgow Green in August get the exact same reeds that your local supplier gets, then I would suggest that a little further research...

Re: Well-known pipers who play easy reeds?

Shawn Husk has got it right..it's about vibrancy...unfortunately, even with all of the improvements in reed making over the last 10 years, finding the reed that vibrates freely is somewhat of a...

Re: Londonderry Air?

It's standard tuning...1990 Naill ABW chanter that sets very close to Concert b flat with a Shepherd reed..old school sound that I prefer..it's the high A you're hearing, not a high G....no carving...

Re: Band pipe chanter/reed combinations

G1 Platinum reeds...if you have players that can handle them and have a P/M that can set chanters properly...otherwise you'll waste your money....matched with McCallum chanters.
