Re: "B" Flat Set up

It would be interesting if a G1 band came in at a markedly lower pitch...and won...what would the other bands do the following year?..would they lower their pitch in response?..are they all just...

Re: "B" Flat Set up

Quote/I should have worded it better. I'm not asking why.. I'm asking why now. The band pitch has been at and above 480 for the last 15 years just about.

It's because the top bands and their PM's...

Re: Anyone know these pipes, wood? Maker?

Understood..it wasn't made clear when that conversation took place...if he wouldn't tell you why he believes that to be true or who the turner was then that's a red flag as to their provenance.....

Re: Blair Digital Bagpipes - Update

Sounds fantastic...the time when this sort of thing is incorporated into a real set of Pipes is not far off...with an attached, quality speaker..mark my words.

Re: David Naill solo blackwood chanters - Any good?

I've also found the ABW Naill to be overly sensitive to temperature change..the wood needs to be warmed up to reach peak efficiency..doesn't like cold temps and will sound flat as can be when played...

Re: Who makes this reed?

From what I've heard Bob Shepherd say, the B flat reeds were just ones that sounded flatter off the board..I like the idea of playing B flat chanters in competition, the Shepherd Orchestral has been...

Re: David Naill solo blackwood chanters - Any good?

The Naill poly band chanter is a bit of an outlier...only knew of one band that played them and they have since moved on from them..still a good chanter but can be finicky to reed up as are the solo...

Re: Does different price mean different quality?

I just don't believe that a set of plain Pipes gets the same wood as the top of the line model...no matter what the maker says publicly...would you expect them to say differently?...smarten up.

Re: New video/exercise sheet for learning Heavy D throws

Exactly...I understand the preference of some players for some situations, but there's nothing quite like the sound of a proper heavy D throw..especially with a bit of style and flair attached.

Re: New video/exercise sheet for learning Heavy D throws

Too many modern era Pipers play that ghastly light D throw...as Pipe Major Angus would say..."there canna be a throw on D, without low G."

Re: Picking the right reed

Don't get hung up on the the terms easy, medium, hard etc...find and select a reed that vibrates freely regardless of strength..when you blow it in your mouth you can sense the level of vibration...
