Re: head shakers

My band was walking up to a parade start point when a drunk lying in the gutter said "You gotta stop wearing them dresses and get right with God". We got a kick out of that.

Re: Taps on pipes?

I played it when the Marine bugler informed me his battery was dead. He asked if I knew Taps. I played it. It was fine, no complaints or rude remarks, just satisfied people.

Re: Bass drum head materials...

Re: I made my own pipe bag

Wow! You don't want to 'hide' it with a bag cover, it'd be like covering a great tat with boring clothes.

Re: Playing "Taps"

I've many times heard two bugles play 'echo Taps'...and the last phrase is repeated (echoed)...in a dreamy state that could pass as the way it should be always.

Re: Best Repair/Restore USA?

Re: MacDougalls?

Good news.
He's decided to send them to Naill in Minehead for the restoration. He's very keen to start lessons. He's just turned 50... As a side, the Pipes do have brass lined drones.

Re: MacDougalls?

They don't seem to be in need of drastic repair, really from what could tell they are in pretty good shape. I suspect they would play fine with a new bag, chanter and reeds and not much else. ...
