Default Re: Fake 'ivory'

I had the same feeling when buying my first bagpipes. If it's not ivory, why try to make it look like it? I was wondering about what shall I use, but in the end I opted for "boxwood" material and I definately don't regret - the color is more or less similar to the majority, but it's clearly a wood, neither shiny metal nor plastic. And that's what I like and what I'd recommend. Also so far I haven't seem a lot of similar bagpipes so far, but living in central Europe makes it difficult to see ANY bagpipes
Whatever I ask on this forum, the answer should be: "Practice more", for thats what I need ;-)
