Re: Bruce Gandy chanter - reviews?

Re: New Ceol chanter?

Re: Canmore, Bannatyne, or Gannaway?

You can install the moose valve inside tubepart behind the TrapDri. I have tried it and it works great.

Re: MacPherson/Sinclair pipes in the '70s

It seems that the drones are made from Burmese blackwood, Brazilian rosewood or East Indian Rosewood.
