Re: Drones tuning themselves on their own??

Probably the player had the pipe tuned and stable, then just left it for a few minutes before starting to play again, with drones left untouched. Once they had been played again they would naturally...

Re: Pitch Delight

Well I have an old cocus Henderson chanter that pitches at A=452Hz, a Grainger chanter pitching nicely at 466Hz and a Strathmore at A=480Hz so I guess I can have my pitch cake and eat it :)

Re: Silica cooking time?

I do mine at 110-120C, 45-50 minutes with a stir half way through. Silica releases most of the retained water by 120C, so no need to go hotter.

Re: D Naill Bagpipe

I have had mine for 3 years now & am very happy with them. I use Xtreme tenors in mine, with Ayrshire bagpipe blackwood bass. Ezee tenors and cane or Xtreme bass also go well.

Re: Beginner help - CPA, the CLASP etc

There is no grading for CPA, just sign up. However to have any chance of being in the prizes at the main contests be aware you need to be able to take on players from the top Grade 1 bands.
