Re: Selling pipes (not an ad)

Generally, you can piece values together by the asking prices found in the Trading Post Archive (though they may have sold for lower) and by completed sales at eBay. That’s a starting point. But...

Re: Selling pipes (not an ad)

It's supply and demand. Kintails aren't a "hot" make of pipes. You could argue that not enough people are seeing your pipes for sale, but that seems unlikely based on what you've said. You might just...

Re: Fingers moving out of position (foul noise)

dtstewart, do you mean "crossing noises"? That is, extra notes that occur between desired notes? Such as moving from Low-A to E and finding that an errant F sounds in the transition?

Regardless,...

Re: Little Mac Valve

I love my Moose Valve. Works like a champ. I still have my Lil' Mac for backup, but haven't used it in a long time.

Re: Jimmy McColl

I put in 67.5 hours last week at work. I'll add the McColl conversion to my list of free-time projects! I'm behind on a lot of them.

A gentleman indeed.

I have some recordings of his workshops. (One from my living room.) I need to convert them to computer files when I get extra time. (Maybe when I retire in 20-25 years?)...

Re: Practice Chanter hertz

That reading doesn't reflect reality. The device is designed to pretend the PC is tuning in a pipe chanter range—which it isn't really. Divide that number by 2 and you should get the real Hz for your...

Re: Practice Chanter hertz

I suspect that you mean your PC’s Low A is tuning at 220, not 440. 440 would be quite high for a PC. Most PCs tune around 230 +/- 10 Hz.

He and his wife moved . . . dunno, 5-10 years ago now, I guess . . . to be closer to his daughter who lives in Southern California.

When his time comes, it will be an incredible loss to the piping...

Re: Grrrr. Pipe failure at memorial service!

Well, there's being absent-minded—I'm no stranger to that—and there's almost unavoidable bad luck. If you opened up your pipe case at the band performance to find that your neighbor's pet mouse got...
