Re: Gordon Walker

Oh, I have just looked into this now, and this is for sure a tragic story.
And I'm very sorry to hear about this.

Re: Balance Tone Drone Reeds

Hi,

To be honest, I think that Balance Tone reeds just give too much buzz from the tenor drones. What you want is a sweet tone off your tenors and a bit of buzz and much depth from the bass drone....

Re: Low G won't sharpen

Do you ease off your blowing when playing the Low G? - quite normal to do that.

If not:

When your low G is flat, you will have to move the the sound holes CLOSER to the reed not more far away!...

Re: Carbon fibre reeds, worth tinkering?

From my point of view the ring (Overtones) you get off the Ezeedrone tenor reeds is a much desirable feature. The Henderson deluxe tenors a bit of the same ring.

Re: Robertson bagpipes

I have decided to put this set of Robertsons up for sale. This is a spetacular set of drones, but I have an equally good set of ebony Hendersons, I prefer.

Please PM for price and further details.

Re: Robertson bagpipes

I think my set is comprised of different wood type, drone tops might be this THINWIN wood, drone bottoms are ebony or abw. Stocks migh also be THINWIN.

I have just received the pipes and still need to experiment with setup....
