Default Re: Drone Volume in Old Recordings

I don't think the drones are too loud .. maybe there's echo because it's indoors? Probably would have sounded different in the open air. Maybe also the cane reeds are set a bit open, to reduce the chance of one locking up during a recording.
I like the vintage recordings. I certainly wasn't around back then, so I wonder if you could get a sound like Robert Brown, now. If you play a skin bag, cane reeds, and a low-pitch wooden chanter. I suspect some of the sound is the recording technology.
I like what Patrick is doing, maybe that's more like what the pipes actually sounded like (except the pitch) in person.
