Re: Low G won't sharpen

Do you ease off your blowing when playing the Low G? - quite normal to do that.

If not:

When your low G is flat, you will have to move the the sound holes CLOSER to the reed not more far away!...

Re: Carbon fibre reeds, worth tinkering?

From my point of view the ring (Overtones) you get off the Ezeedrone tenor reeds is a much desirable feature. The Henderson deluxe tenors a bit of the same ring.

Re: Robertson bagpipes

I have decided to put this set of Robertsons up for sale. This is a spetacular set of drones, but I have an equally good set of ebony Hendersons, I prefer.

Please PM for price and further details.

Re: Robertson bagpipes

I think my set is comprised of different wood type, drone tops might be this THINWIN wood, drone bottoms are ebony or abw. Stocks migh also be THINWIN.

Hi all, thanks for your comments/ideas etc.

I have just received the pipes and still need to experiment with setup....

Re: Bruce Gandy chanter - reviews?

Set the HA a tad flat and you will automatically reduce the tape on HG, works well for solo piping :thumb:
