Canning Carbon bass/EZ Tenors

Has anyone tried this combo? I like the EZ tenors but the bass is a bit blah?

Thanks.

Re: Pipes, A Serious Commitment…The Grumbles of a Newbie

Good point. That is honestly my least favorite thing about the GHB. I love the music, but I really don't care about wearing a kilt or anything. I would love to see a development towards a less...

Re: Pipes, A Serious CommitmentÂ…The Grumbles of a Newbie

As someone who also plays guitar (quite well) I think that approaching the bagpipes in the same way as the guitar doesn't really work simply because the pipes so different and more difficult. That's...

Re: Pipes, A Serious Commitment…The Grumbles of a Newbie

As far as instruments go the highland bagpipes are actually surprisingly affordable, especially for how niche they are. $100 for a practice chanter, lessons don't run more than lessons for any other...

Re: New Gannaway — leaking neck?

Checked all the stocks and added some more seasoning around the neck, it seemed to solve the problem.

Thanks for the tips!

Re: New Gannaway — leaking neck?

I did, primed it and let it dry for about 6 hours, as per the directions. I’ve used Gannaway bags before and not had this happen which leads me to believe it’s an issue with the bag itself.

Yup! $250 for the bag with no grommets or zipper, which is what I prefer.

Sounds like Gannaway is still the way to go, based on preference. Thanks for all the reccomendations!

Thanks

Canmore, Bannatyne, or Gannaway?

Hello all,

I currently play a medium Bannatyne bag, and I really dislike how thin the material is, it makes strike-ins difficult, and just isn't comfortable. I used to play a Gannaway leather bag...
