My favorite piper ever has to be Gordon Duncan. What other piper have you ever heard of that has composed more than 30 good tunes. Many of which have flats and sharps in them. Mind blowing stuff....

Re: Sheet music for Flower of Yarrow?

Thank you both for the reply, I did not realise that it was a BP tune as I only heard the tail end of it on the radio. But will look for a GHB version.

Perhaps it is just me, but every " medium strength " reed I have bought, seems to be made for some superhuman. I find no pleasure in piping with a headache :)
The solution, for me has always...

Highland small pipe or Parlour pipes

Hi, I have recently been given a set of these pipes to repair.
They have not been played for 20+ years and I was wondering if anybody out there knows a reedmaker/bagmaker that can supply spares?

Re: Oh no!! Another crack!!

For wulls, In my experience, the price of materials between ABW and Poly chanters does not compare.
I can make a poly chanter for 1/10 of the material cost of an ABW one.

Re: Oh no!! Another crack!!

ABW chanter tops... Some split, some dont.
It's not the end of the world, and any good maker will offer a replacement at a reduced price. (outside normal guarantee)

Re: African Blackwood practice chanter and moisture

Hello there, This is only my opinion : leave the mouthpiece screwed on and hang the chanter upside down to let moisture drain out.

Re: Fred Morrison

I too saw Fred at the Aros centre on Skye and was amazed, what a talent.
Anybody with an interest in piping should see him if given the chance.
