Re: Problem with the cutoff...

This is a perennial problem with "new tech"

Re: Stories of a broken Pipe Bands Australia

This is an easy fix.
resign en masse and form your own association.
If you can't get the numbers you have to put up with what you have.
It's called democracy.

Re: Rocket Drone Reeds Required

Re: Recycling a broken joint

Macallum learned eons ago it's faster and cheaper to replace rather than repair pipes.
Id try the repair route on an old set where the individual components are irreplaceable, not on a newer set.
