Default Re: I hate my bagpipes

Ooof. Yep. Couple sets. One was my fist S/I set from a newish maker. I had heard a set and liked them, but the ones I received never tuned well, and there were issues with the turning. Even the silver was engraving was disappointing, and every time I looked at them I would feel disappointed. Got rid of them at a loss, but fortunately wandered into an awesome set of Hendersons that I played for a few years. Current set of pipes sound great, but there was some bad blood with the maker due to a shipping glitch that really tainted my experience. Every time I pick them up I'm reminded of what a bummer it was.

Best part of piping is there's always another set out there.
