1 /12 = 1 month?:shrug: I take it you mean areas and a half :)

Re: What the Masters are playing

Re: What the Masters are playing

Re: Scotland April 2019

In fact, the Skye boat song is about travelling from Benbecula to Skye, not the Mainland.

Re: Scotland April 2019

If you are in Stornoway in April why not catch the Donald MacLeod Memorial Competition? All the top names will be playing there.

Re: Bagpipe Case

I have the Bagpiper backpack / flight case. It's is really quite good, if a little bit big for cabin luggage on Logan air flights (fine for major airlines).

Re: The Home Isles... Good Pubs for the Pipes

Glasgow a must, as said above, the park bar, the islay inn and the nevis make up the 'teuchter triangle'. Well worth a trip through. Check out the park bar on fb :thumb:

Re: Practice Chanter Reeds-no fuss

honestly I wasn't bowled over by the G1 practice chanter reeds.

Always find Frazer Warnock chanter reeds superb. Cheap and work.

Re: LF: Metalica?

Re: What *interesting* drone reed *combos* work well in your pipes (and why)?
