Re: Piping in the Park

I used to live pretty rural. Was playing at an abandoned cemetery way out in the country a few years ago. Not a soul in sight. Played a couple of tunes, then Hubby started laughing. Turned around,...

Re: A real bitey blower

I wanted a ReedWrangler mouthpiece, but couldn't afford one. So I put a piece of 1/2 in plastic irrigation tubing over the end of the mouthpiece. I still chew on it, but I can't bite through it, and...

Re: military etiquette?

Yes. Our Military has a different attitude toward the Flag than other countries, UK, Germany, wherever. We regard the Flag as a living entity, to be treated with respect and honor, so saluting the...

Re: When The Battle's Over-0600

Played "Battles O'er" on my front porch at Noon. Figured it was 0600 somewhere... Soon as I cut off, I heard a rumble, and looked up. There was a flight of four Army Cobras flying overhead. It was...

Re: When The Battle's Over-0600

I'll be playing on my front porch. I live in Oregon, but I'll be playing at 6 am Hawaii time. I have good neighbors, and I want them to stay that way...

Re: Ready for 1st Band Performance???

"Hoping my military days many years ago makes the transition to marching somewhat easier. "

That's what I thought, too. 22 years Army, marching should be a snap, right? Um, not quite. Bands march...

Re: Cold weather playing

One of my instructors accepted a gig for a wedding. It was to be held at a ski resort at Mammoth Mountain, CA. He got there, tuned up and then was told, no, not in the Lodge, at the cafe at the top...

Re: Ready for 1st Band Performance???

Just remember, if you plug the chanter and are only playing drones, your cutoff times aren't gonna be the same. Your drones will linger on as you try frantically to stop the damn things from hooting,...

Re: How Many Pipers in the World?

My brother. He has a set of silver and ivory pipes he bought from a piper back in the 70's, because he liked the guys kilt... I don't know the maker. He doesn't play, doesn't want to play, doesn't...

Re: Transition to the Worlds

Agree with what was said about moisture control and humidity. Our band competed last year, and we got there about 10 days prior to the Worlds. We also competed at North Berwick and Bridge of Allan,...

Re: International travel with Technopipes

Only time I ever had a problem was right after 911. Had them in the pipe case with my GHBs, shuttle pipes, and a couple of practice chanters. Too many tubes and too much wire for the screeners to...

Re: Where to Look, and When for a "good deal"

The pipes were confiscated from the buyer, and returned to the bandmember. As the buyer worked for the pawnshop in question, I'm sure they worked something out between themselves... :whistle:

Re: Where to Look, and When for a "good deal"

Watch out for pawn shops, though. One of my instructors had a student show up for a lesson with a set he'd gotten from a pawn shop. Turns out the pipes had been stolen from the car of a bandmember,...

Re: Comfortable Formal Marching Shoes

I found a pair of Dr Scholls women's work shoes at Walmart. They're black and take a shine well. Only $25.00, and they've lasted me several years, and look like they'll last a good many more. Very...

Re: Large mouthpiece protector

I saw the Reed Wrangler years ago, and liked the idea of it. However, the price was too steep for my limited budget. So I improvised. I took an Airstream mouthpiece with a mouthpiece protector,...

Re: Grrrr. Pipe failure at memorial service!

Re: Shipping a chanter you’ve sold

And forget Duct Tape. It doesn't stay on the packages worth a darn. Use clear shipping tape. Cheaper, and does a good job. The triangular shipping tubes and bubble wrap are your best bet. They're...
