Re: Finest Practice Chanters

My Currie pc came with a Watson Deluxe (blue wrap) reed. I can't find any more and have tried others including the Abbott, but nothing that was as nice as the Watson.

Re: Electronic chanters

I think that electonic chanters are a good idea but should only be used when you can't use your pc. The major part of practice should be your regular pc. I like the Fagerstrom for travelling.

Re: First Set of Pipes

Bob,

I remember reading post comparing Dunbar and Crisler delrin pipes. One respected member commented that the Crisler were quieter and smoother sounding in his opinion.

Re: To remove or not to remove?

Richard,

If the partial is well fitting, you should be able to play with it in with no trouble, especially if it involves back teeth only.
Implants are the way to go, but take a long time. ...

David Currie PC

Does anyone have his new e-mail address. I can't find any Watson Deluxe pc reeds and need to know what else he's recommending.

Re: Easy Chanter Reed

Brent,

I took your advice and beat the crap out of the reed (not exactly) and it was much easier to blow and still sounded good.

Re: Easy Chanter Reed

Brent,

Yes I do squeeze the sound box, but my concern is that it supposedly shortens the life span of the reeds. I'm going to take your advice and try some other reeds and see what works.

Brent,

I've been buying supposedly easy Troy reeds and they still seem like trying to blow tree trunks. I've used other medium reeds in the past that were easier. I love his reeds, but want...

Easy Chanter Reed

I've been happily been using Troy reeds, but Id like to switch to an easier out-of-the-box reed that still has a powerful sound. Any suggestions?

Re: Good and Bad Dealers

Chief,

We both play Tweedies. My bass is a problem. We can either get it to tune or get it to strike in. My old Sinclair chanter was a disaster, the newer Dunbar was close, but no cigar. ...

Re: Good and Bad Dealers

Chief,
Both my instructor and I thought that since the reed was quite new, the vendor should have offered to replace the o-ring with a Crozier one. Getting some extras at a hardware store is good...

They're not listed but he said that he can order them. About six week wait.

Re: Clanrye Synthetic Pipe Chanter Reed

I'd agree with Rodger. I started at 53 and used easy Megarity-Ross reeds for a while because they were so easy to blow. Sounded good too. Get a bunch, they don't last as long as the stronger...

Watson Deluxe PC Reed

Does anyone know who sells the Watson Deluxe (blue wrap) pc reed, preferably in Canada? It's seems to be the best reed for my Currie pc.

Re: Dave Currie's E-mail Address?

Thanks Stephanie, but I've already tried that one and the server said "invalid recipient". He must have changed servers.
