Re: Forum activity levels

If I remember correctly, that was a feature early on, but some forum members, (now long gone), used to change their name so regularly that the forum became a place of confusion. One guy originally...

Re: Forum activity levels

Re: Forum activity levels

The problems that we had with pseudonyms as mods were in the days before we had software that sees where you post from. Not just the town, but the actual IP.

We found that the 19 biggest trolls...

Re: Dale Jackson's new synthetic chanter reed

Harley asked for a copy of a very well known tune by Murray Blair. I have looked over the thread and have seen no evidence of anyone else claiming to have composed it.
Harley knew what he was doing,...

Re: Gordon Walker

As there has been mention of "the moderators" often on this thread, I thought I'd chip in.

First, I'm surprised this story has come up now, it's been common knowledge since at least the 2nd of...

Re: The Highland Pipe and Scottish Society, London, 1840s

All I can tell you is that I had a beautiful cap badge for the The Highland Pipe and Scottish Society, London, (except written in Gaelic), and I asked for information about it on this forum round...

Re: Inisheer

The site you refer to is illegal and has been ordered to be taken down in the past due to legal action by some very well known pipers and composers, one of whom is an international lawyer as well as...

Re: Rakes of Mallow pipe tune

I think it's just one of those tunes that has several titles. If you listen to the English Morris Dance tune "Rigs of Marlow", (transcribed by Cecil Sharpe in the 1800s after hearing it in...

Re: Question about Smallpipe reeds

The reeds are smaller and have inverted tongues. I don't know much/anything about mouth blown smallpipes/folkpipes, but the dimensions suggest they use a similar sized drone reed to bellows blown...

Re: Are replica pipes comparable to the original?

I used to have a set of antique MacRaes, I now have a set of the new MacRae SL4's. They don't sound exactly like my old MacRaes, but they are far steadier, far easier to strike in, and take a wide...

Re: I.D. Cover sketch on S. Jones tutor

A lot of the time it was a matter of numbers. At the Battle of Bannockburn there were over 2000 English cavalry. It would have been impossible to capture and ransom such a huge amount. Around two...

Re: I.D. Cover sketch on S. Jones tutor

It was a method used throughout Europe. In the Kelvingrove museum, where I work, we have a large collection of medieval weapons and armour. One section is devoted entirely to the injuries suffered by...

I don't know who the guy is, but the playing seems OK to me, even though his posture is not something I'm used to seeing.

Re: I.D. Cover sketch on S. Jones tutor

Not all ballock knives have the ballocks at the guard. The ballock knife is generally considered the ancestor of the dirk. The main difference is that the handles of ballock knives tend to be turned,...

Re: Case for Smallpipes

A pal of mine uses a soft alto sax case he was given. The pipes fit in the long section and the bellows fit in the bit where the horn would go. Works for border pipes too. ...

Re: Row me home to Islay

The sheet music download seems to be a page out of Julia Gordon's book, Songs and Airs of Scotland Book 2. This book does contain the tune, but it's an arrangement for accordion, like the rest of the...

Re: Vintage photo - 1944 Eindhoven ???

Could well be. The 2nd Batt Glasgow Highlanders led by Lt-Col. P. Hunt were certainly in Eindhoven in Sept 1944. The badge is very similar to the 42nd BW....

Re: SSPs with keys?

I don't have a set with keys, but most smallpipe makers in Scotland offer it as a choice. A high B key is the most requested one, but Julian Goodacre, say, also offers a keyed chanter that allows...
