Re: Small Bluetooth transmitter?

You can find small inexpensive blue tooth transmitters on eBay and Amazon.

Canning tenors and a cane bass are smooth and pretty mellow in my set of Naills.

Re: Grey's Anatomy Solo Piper Tune?

Grey's Anatomy Solo Piper Tune?

My wife accidentally caught the end of Grey's Anatomy this week, season 15 episode 13, and saw a solo "piper" near the end of the show playing a slow air. Did anyone happen to see the show and know...

Re: What happened at McCain's memorial service

El Gaitero, do you still have that reed? As I get older my reed requirements are changing. I play somewhere between a feeble and a medium feeble reed. :thumb:

Re: What happened at McCain's memorial service

Lowering expectations and awarding participation trophies would solve all of this.

I don't know why but I'm gonna go practice. Carry on.

If you guys accept that performance on the world stage in front of millions of viewers as simply a "bad day" what would you consider a really good day? Half as many errors and problems?

New piper and scared to death. Should have said "No but I'll help you find a qualified piper."

Can anyone tell me the name of the tune played at the end of this video tutorial- https://www.bagpipe-tutorials.com/lord-macdonald.html
It comes in at 4:46.
I'm drawing a blank, thanks much.

Re: Garolite bodied drone reeds expand when wet?

I would agree. The reed I checked is younger, 7 or 8 years old. There very well could have been a material change.

Re: My personal experience with Blackwood pipes (had no choice but to attach it)

Hi Michael, learning how to set up your pipes will go a long ways towards achieving the sound you're looking for. There are lots of good (some bad) spoken tutorials on YouTube to help.
