Re: Taps on pipes?

While yes, Taps is just one tune, it takes a while to build the lip strength to play the highest note necessary.

I'm sure there are enough people in the military who played trumpet in band in high...

Ahh, yup. I didn't look closely enough at the whole picture. The flat bush threw me off.

Re: Suspicious/dubious set posted online?

Strange that the chanter sole has different engraving on the top than on the bottom.

Re: Identifying a set of pipes - Pakistani or not?

Hard to be certain, but the profile of the drones says Pakistani to me.

Re: Tuning to 452hz

I will often tell people the pipes sound in Eb and are written in D, but we really play in Bb mixolydian and are written in A mixolydian.

Re: Pipe chanter reeds

I always had students keep the drones in the stocks, but stop them off, either with corks in the tops or little squares of plastic (like from a shopping bag if where you live still does plastic bags)...

Re: costa mesa band results?

I wish Camerons took 2nd.

2nd went to Blandford. 1st and 3rd are correct, though.

Re: Naill Re-bore?

Or wrap hemp lower down on the pins.

I will say that the "hemp line" rule of thumb is a useful one, though. When putting my pipes together, I know approximately where my pipes will be in tune...

Re: Which Drone Reeds for McCallum P4

Did you ask your instructor for their thoughts? While any instructor worth their salt should be able to help you set up any reed, yours will probably have preferences on what kind to use.

Re: Most frequent/overplayed tunes for solo competitions

A few years ago, I played a somewhat unknown strathspey that I bought from Jim McGilivray’s site in my SR and the judge told me I should play more well-known tunes. :shrug:

Re: Flapper hinge...up or down?

How do you dump the tube with the Moose in place?

Also, this wouldn’t work with a sealed hide bag, which is what I prefer.

Re: Flapper hinge...up or down?

If I could use a Moose Valve with my split stock, I would.

But as it stands, that doesn't work unless I want to put the valve somewhere down the tube and hope that the connection to the tube never...

Re: Gibson Firesides and Scotian bag

The only problem I can think of is that the OD of the stocks aren’t the same and it might be hard to get a good tie in with the Firesides.

I won a few awards in the two seasons I did solos. Maybe I'll get back into solo competition again. Had to stop to focus on other things.

Re: Piob High G/A vs High G/A in Piobaireachd competition

As of now. As Patrick said, there are a lot of light music tunes that would probably benefit from G sharp.

And I’m sure I’ve seen older light music with G natural in the key signature as well.

Re: Piob High G/A vs High G/A in Piobaireachd competition

I’m still of the mindset (though with no definitive proof), that piob HG was to flatten the note to closer to G natural, while light music kept it closer to G sharp. Looking at old manuscripts, you...

You could probably ask McCallum to make one, since they’re the makers of the Gandy chanters.
