Re: Which pipes do I want?

I've had both cane & plastic, and what it really breaks down to for me is this: Wood reeds sound richer, truer & deeper, whereas plastic is easier to maintain. I live in Chicago where we have massive...

Re: Irish folk on smallpipes in D

Just wanted to pop back in, say thanks for all the suggestions & help. And to mention another tune that popped into my head: Jim Ward's stays in the lower octave, and is a beautiful jig. If anyone...

Re: Irish folk on smallpipes in D

Kevin, you can get a high C natural from smallpipes in D by putting down your middle finger. And can get something close to a low C nat by halfholing.

Re: Irish folk on smallpipes in D

Re: Irish folk on smallpipes in D

Sorry, you're right. I meant to type "pipes in D". My bad. However, I am still a bit confused how playing something written in D on pipes keyed in D turns it into G. I have tried to look it up, but...

Re: Irish folk on smallpipes in D

Please forgive my ignorance, but i never got schooled in music theory. Why/How would I be playing in the key of G if my pipes are in the Key of A?

Also, what do you mean I'll have to get used to...

Help with 'Star of Munster'

I play mainly Irish jigs & reels, and am currently working on Star of Munster. Although my Walsh D2000s lack a 2nd octave, I am usually able to make the tunes sound halfway decent. This time however,...

WTB: Smallpipe Bag

I recently bought a Walsh D2000 smallpipe with a leaky bag. I'm working on patching it, but would rather use the patched bag as a backup, and not rely on it primarily.
If you have a spare pipe bag...

Re: "Kitchen Pipes" (Pipes Galore) or Smallpipes

I have to disagree. If price is your main consideration, I suggest buying used pipes. I am dirt poor(I'm a street performer, by trade), so I waited &amp; looked &amp; bought my shuttles for 350 from the...
