Re: Anyone willing to boycott CNC-made pipes?

Well said. Some CNC's sound better than the hyped up sets that have some choir of a bunch of grade 4's or lower praising them as they are some great sounding sets. Some handmade set look great, but...

Re: Looking for Band in Western PA

Seems the MacDonald Pipe Band is a pretty good group of folks. They are in Pittsburgh, so a little less than 2 hours.

You may have some options up north of...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

Wow from apple juice to sheepskin bags. I can see coffee makers that are now all junk and last one year, but sheepskin and apple juice? What happened? Guess the Pakistanis will be buying them and...

Re: North America gains a pipemaker!

Great news. Thanks for the info. Wish he was coming to Pittsburgh, but glad he is in the US. Sure is a nice gentleman and of course a fine piper. Always enjoy Brian when I get to see him. ...

Re: Donald MacPherson's Lawries for sale...

That is quite a price, but still very cheap compared to some violins with a bit of history. Glad the price got so high. It shows there is interest in piping/history and a demand for some pipes with...

Re: Donald MacPherson's Lawries for sale...

Glad you spoke up, Colin. A set like those doesn't come around often and the pipes themselves DO make a difference, not just the piper. "Nothing special"? What a joke of a statement. Shocking...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

<PRUNED!! forum policy. rmao> My apologies.

As far as the debate on sheep and how people argue about it, I won't retract anything on that. Simple enough to just say, I can't hear a difference...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

Bottom line is I am pointing out the lack of respect on here regarding the opinions of a Roddy or a Colin. <edited, forum policy..rmao>... with my respect for him as a piper and a judge. Why would...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

That is a little different than some very qualified piper telling you, "they hear a difference". If they hear a difference, they hear it, unless you feel they are lying. That is up to you and your...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

I must have hit a nerve with some. My post wasn't directed at anyone in particular, it was just a general statement. It isn't some big deal, not to have the ears of a Roddy or Colin. I do get a...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

Here is a thought. Stop pounding one's chest and yield to better ears. If Colin and Roddy say they can hear a difference who the heck are you? Seriously! It reminds me of a friend of mine that...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

It might be too simple. You know we like to make things complicated. I'll bet it would work and then you won't have to deal with the blowouts and not much in the way of seasoning that piece of...

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

That is more than logical. Thanks. Don't know if I will go back to sheep, but if I do, I will keep that in mind.

Re: Sheepskin tone: Roddy MacLeod speaks out

Seems the interior of bags has an effect. Why can't you just put a piece of sheepskin in a synthetic bag? I had a sheepskin bag blowout right before I was going to hit the boards. Just had a hole...

Re: Summer Piping School

You are going to have a great time and learn a lot. Enjoy. I have been to many Balmoral Schools and came away with a lot each time. Great stuff.

Re: Donald MacPherson's Lawries for sale...

You might or you might not better the bid. Just depends on who is bidding. There are always bigger pockets around if people feel so inclined. Good luck to you.

Thanks for sharing that experience, Colin. Brings life to someone I never had the pleasure of meeting, but enjoyed his music.

Re: Antique pipes, repair or don't repair?

How bad is this crack? Does it even need repair? Is it leaking? How much is it leaking? Can you just put a little black wax in there and that is good enough? Do that and watch to see if the...

Re: Donald MacPherson's Lawries for sale...

Really? Not sure I understand. If Mr. MacPherson felt it was an upgrade putting in a Hardie bass bottom, I feel that is enough for me. If the pipes sounded better with the replacement wouldn't...

Re: Scammed in St. Louis :-(

I agree. Nothing wrong with some jail time and an attitude adjustment. Might be just what the doctor ordered. Sometimes hard time works wonders. Hope he gets what is coming to him and he sees the...
