Re: Pipe Tunes for the Season

Some retailers sell that tune book "Santas favorite pipe tunes." Anything worth having a look at in there?

Re: Radical reed shaving

I got a batch of pretty old Shepard's I shave down. My instructor says the key is hydration as well. Store them in a container of sorts for about a week or so before fighting with them.

Re: When to use a Gauge to check the Strength a Chanter Reed

Very nice set up! I like the idea of being able to calibrate the drones! Looks like you custom machined the middle section. What material did you use and were would a person buy it?

Re: Help identifying tune

Jack Lee's directory has lots of stuff too. The piob files have Jack playing the tune, sheet music files AND a bit of history about the tune.
