Re: A piper's eye

I'm not sure it would neatly fit the GHB scale. It's in Dorian mode, FWIW., so if the lowest note was G, you'd need a C natural. I'll give it a try and get back with results.:shrug:

Re: Who'd have thought… (Squealing drones)

Yes, but note that the problems with this particular bag occurred with bags that were too big. That bag is too elastic for easy control without a snug bag cover. ( I have a hide bag on the way:thumb:)

Re: Adjustable blowpipe ID

Re: Adjustable blowpipe ID

That's what I thought it was. Did the old models have the Li'l Mac integral to the tenon?
