Re: Rocket Drone Reeds Required

A set of Rocket Drone reeds just went up for sale on the "Pipe Band Pawn" FaceBook group. It's a closed group, so you may need to ask to join first.

Re: Awards

I'm not a competing piper, but whenever I get medals from running road races, I hang them on the Christmas tree. This means they get safely stored with the other tree ornaments, and get put "on...

Re: Learning online for drumming noobs

Please keep the updates coming!

I'm considering signing up for Rhythm Monster lessons. I'm a piper looking to build some drumming "street cred" by learning the snare. Figure it can't hurt to...

BlowPro Pressure Monitor

Has anyone tried using the BlowPro pressure monitor? Any thoughts?

Seems a little pricey to buy the sensor, but if it helps with steady blowing it may be worthwhile.

Re: Gift pipes - what would YOU do?

Perhaps the current owner of the pipes could make sure they pass to the daughter when he no longer needs them. He would be able to continue using the pipes which were given to him, knowing that they...

Re: Phones in Scotland

We were there last summer, and signed up for AT&T's International Hot Spot service (we have bundled services through AT&T, including cellular). Bottom line is that it was simply awful, and we wound...

Re: What make of pipe bag do you play?

Re: What make of pipe bag do you play?
