Re: Smallpipes in other pitches besides A or D?

C is a great pitch too! If I ever get a set of smallpipes, C would be my pitch of choice. E and F might be too small for my fingers, even though I think those would sound lovely.

Re: Imitation ivory and UV.

Interesting, could there maybe some sort of uv resistant substance they use when making it?

Re: Kelt drone reeds

I might look into getting a poly beater set down the road.




As for drone reeds, I decided to get canning blue reeds from Tartantown (Where I saw the Kelt reeds) a few weeks ago, fantastic...

Re: Drone bore mist

When I am finished playing I unzip the bag empty the traps, and then clean whatever I need to.

Re: Drone bore mist

For the past few days I've been using the Trapdri tube trap, I find the bottle end too restrictive.

Just a very very light mist, which goes away in less than a minute. This Canmore bag was a great...

Re: Kintail gone or not?

Re: Video camera for practice sessions and performances

I use a zoom H1 recorder so I can record and listen to what I am doing wrong.


The video camera is an interesting idea, especially since I got a new bag size, and yes I might want to hook up a...

Re: Kintail gone or not?

Reminds me when I saw a website for Wygent reeds a month or so ago, even though he stopped making them years ago.

IIRC he never patented his design, so all those clones reeds must have driven him...

Re: Smallpipes in other pitches besides A or D?

All very interesting!


Do you think that any current Smallpipe maker could possibly use those old specs to make an instrument in F on special request?

Re: Installing Canmore Hybrid

Re: Installing Canmore Hybrid

UPDATE


It has arrived, and I installed it. I was actually as difficult as I expected, so, not too bad. I pushed the grommets on the stocks using a solid surface, my floor :blush:.
