Default Unboxing of Nate Banton Smallpipes!

Thoughts folks here might want to watch an unboxing I videoed last night of a set of African Blackwood Nate Banton smallpipes. This set has a high B key as well! Also play a few tunes at the end (time code links for tunes in the description):

Those pipes sound great! My tutor uses a set of Banton smallpipes himself and is quite pleased with them.

Also, I'm not sure why the tune links in the description redirect to the beginning of the video? I see that you included the URLs from the 'start at' feature, but it's not working on my end. Most likely something wonky with my web browser!

Cheers,
Joe

Those links aren't working on my end either... I'll get that sorted out!

As an aside, I'm glad I stumbled across your YouTube channel! As a new piper, I appreciate all of the quality resources I can find.

Cheers,
Joe

Thank you! It's been fun getting these videos together. Hope to really grow my channel into a solid bagpipe resource for everyone.

You may have seen one of my earlier posts in the Beer Tent, but I'm hoping to bring a piping wiki back to life once I get over the hump of some academic work this week. I'd be delighted to add your YouTube channel as a resource!

Cheers,
Joe

Great video! Officially jealous now. Those look (and sound) like they will be a bunch of fun for you.
