Re: AILEAN NICHOLSON'S TUNES BOOK 3 - Humors of Glendart

Also, try posting a "WTB" request in the Trading Post. That's worked for me a few times for books I was really, really desperate to find.

Cheers,

Re: AILEAN NICHOLSON'S TUNES BOOK 3 - Humors of Glendart

I've been scouring the internet for books 2 and 3 of that series. I have the first. Best of luck. If you happen to find one, and there's more than one available, please let the collective here know!...

Re: Culloden Collection

Not sure if Wee Hoose is still operating. I tried to buy that book from their website about a year ago, and their site said "Merchant account inactive" when I tried to check out.

Let us know if...

Ron (Ringo) Bowen is your man. His knowledge of what to do with older pipes borders on unparalleled. He would be one of the best people to advise you on the state of them, and how the get the best...

Re: Bruce Gandy chanter - reviews?

Thanks for your input. If it's alright, I'd really like to steer this back toward the thread subject ... this is starting to really veer off-course.

Along those lines, again ... reed choice makes...

Re: Bruce Gandy chanter - reviews?

Quite possibly.

Again, that guess on the Naill was purely just that ... a guess.

For the record, I dont purposely set any chanter toward any target pitch. I set the reed until the high A and...

Re: Bruce Gandy chanter - reviews?

Not entirely sure on the Naill, it happened to come with my pipes when I acquired them. I -feel- like its probably from approximately the early 2000s or so, but thats only based on my conjecture in...

Re: Bruce Gandy chanter - reviews?

Crap, forgot the Gibson at home. Sorry, I'll snap that tomorrow.

For now, I uploaded a shot side-by-side with the Naill. Much closer spacing on the Gandy, as you can readily see. Large holes on...

Re: Bruce Gandy chanter - reviews?

No problem, I'll do that. I should have my Kyo chanter back eventually, at which time, I'll snap a photo of that one as well, and send along.

Personally, I will say, the Gandy chanter is VERY...

Hi Patrick,

I've found my way to using a G1 platinum reed with my blackwood Gandy chanter, and I can confirm the same take-aways as Austin. Great sound, and it's been doing very well for me so far. Lots of...

Re: Fat mount set on Ebay

Anyone else have any thoughts on the make/age?

Is it me, or are some of the stock ferrules curling inward on the ends? Unless it's just a camera angle thing?

I'll simply agree to disagree. My points have been made as clearly as I'm able, and I think you have as well.

If not, many people will tune them in front of them, and then stick the drone up beyond their head, on their left...
