Re: Middle drone issue?

Where in CA are you? A full Ross system might be overkill for the climate.

Have you tried swapping the tenor bottoms and see what happens?

Re: Deura Reed Problem

As to your assertion that because you can play other...

Re: Tone Protector

Our band did a bulk order when they first came out and I really like the stability I get from my chanter with it. I wish I had bought a second to use for my solo chanter.

Re: Loose drone reed end cap

Iím guessing itís a Kinnaird or similar reed.

Use a strip of tape on the back of the reed along the nosecone/body junction.

Re: Archy J, Indiaís 1st Pro Female Bagpiper

I canít speak to the abilities of the other two, but Iíve heard Chelsea (Dame of Drones) play in real life. Iím pretty sure sheís a G2 soloist and it comes across in her playing.

Same. I'd be happy to never have to wear that ever again.

Re: Eezeedrone reeds

As others have said, small movements of the bridle are important. If you see it move, it moved too much.

Re: Suggestions for solo march tune with "fat" low gs

Does EUSPBA have a requirement for which parts to play?

WUSPBA, I believe, has a rule stating that if youíre playing only 2 parts of a 4-part tune, you have to play the first two parts.
