Re: eBay Scammer, BEWARE - Henderson pipes

Look, sorry if I came off as questioning the character of the original poster ... that seriously wasn't my intention. I apologize.

I'll leave it there.

Best,

Re: Solo chanters/reeds

Yeah .. this is a very tough area to nail down, it seems to me.

I've been on this search myself since starting with competition last year. My competition set is an old, 1910s set of cocuswood...

Re: eBay Scammer, BEWARE - Henderson pipes

Forgive me, but where/what is the evidence that this Ebay posting is not the same person posting on Gumtree? One can certainly post in more than one place, and pull the item if/when it's sold on one...

Re: Low G won't sharpen

Ditto on the fact that you should be using "JUST" tuning for a bagpipe chanter, definitely not equal. Just intonation calls for the G to be significantly flatter than equal, and so I believe that...

Re: Piper needed Sep 28 Long Beach Island NY

Suggestion still stands with the 28th; though would be easier to fill than the 21st.

Ouch ... yeah that’s during Loon. Tough weekend to fill.

Empire Pipe Band just announced that they’re disbanding ... so maybe try contacting them? They’re local to the area, and I think it likely...

Hi Nerdy,

Well stated, and it's good that you chimed back in with some further clarity on your outlook and thought process.

Re: Contests for G4 in NY Metropolitan Area

There's quite a few, if you're willing to drive up to about an hour or two (give or take) each way. If you're willing to go about as far as Scotia, then that sets you up for a pretty good bunch for...

With a reddish hue, I'd wonder about cocuswood. But I do believe African blackwood can have a wide variety of hues to it. My Hendersons are made of cocus, which is the only reason that I'm familiar...

Re: Suspicious/dubious set posted online?

I think he wises up and removed the sale.

Possible its a non- piper who doesnt know what he’s doing. But still, doesnt mean someone else should get ripped off.
