Default Re: Are replica pipes comparable to the original?

I used to have a set of antique MacRaes, I now have a set of the new MacRae SL4's. They don't sound exactly like my old MacRaes, but they are far steadier, far easier to strike in, and take a wide variety of reeds, My old MacRaes were only happy with cane, or eezedrones in the tenors and a cane bass, and took a lot of setting up and retuning.

As Glenurquhart says, they are a pleasure to play.
