Re: Beginner help - CPA, the CLASP etc

Have a look at this, it explains the CLASP grading system. You'll also want to check your eligibility for Amateur status if you think this is the route for you...they'll keep you right. :thumb:

Re: McCallum Bagpipes

I've had great customer service from McCallum twice now. Most recently when my bass drone cracked. In less than two weeks they had a new one made, using the nickel from the original and I was good to...

Re: Portable recording hardware and software

This is something I need. Much easier than having to remember to start and stop. I'll check it out.

Re: Portable recording hardware and software

The TASCAM looks amazing, Ben. I love the Wifi capabilities. Unfortunately, it appears to be about four times the price here in Singapore. It's moved to the top of my list though.

Audacity, I'd...

Re: Portable recording hardware and software

I have the Blue Yeti. I was almost afraid someone would suggest revisiting Garage Band. I will though, we might get along better than we did a few years ago.



That sounds like a great tip, I...

Portable recording hardware and software

I've played at Chatsworth, just the once, and on the Saturday. I could clearly picture what you were describing. I take it you escaped the cossacks on horseback...

Re: What is a Double Gold Medallist?

I didn't know you could return/be sent back to the Silver Medal. My understanding now is, you can qualify to play for the Gold Medal by winning one or both Silver Medals. After two years, should your...

What is a Double Gold Medallist?

Is a double gold medallist someone who has won both Gold Medals in the same year, or someone who won both regardless of when?

Re: Tips for maintaining concentration

Just a small correction in the spirit of education. It's "St Patrick's Day" or "Paddy's Day"..but it's never "Patty's day". Not in Ireland anyway. Have a fab performance.:thumb:

Re: Willie MacCallum bannatyne pipe bag

I have used this bag for about a year. I'm 5'4 female and find it an excellent fit. It's easy to dry and I use the Ross moisture control in it because I didn't really take to the Bannatyne one.
