Default Atherton Pipes - Ross Bag

I use the Ross bag with my Atherton MD pipes. The diameter of the stocks necessitates the use of a hose clamp to make it airtight on all stocks.
Does anyone use an alternate bag on Atherton MD pipes where one does
not need the hose clamp on the drone and blowpipe stocks at least?

Thanks

With a leather or sheepskin bag you wonít need any of that stuff.

Hi Repip,
I have always used a Moose bag with my Atherton MD's .The collars are very tight and there is absolutely no need to use any clamps.Never had any problems with air leakage .I tie the chanter stock in the conventional way with strong cord.

Ross will make you a bag without collars that you can have tied in yourself.

As will Canmore I believe.

I have a hybrid Canmore extended medium and my pipe stocks notched into the grommets perfectly, very good fit. I tied in the chanter stock with tie in chord.

I use five clamps with any Ross bag I install. There was a time not too long ago when Ross bags were all sold with five clamps -- this was the the way for decades. I still sell all of my Ross bags with five clamps. I see this in no way as a disadvantage.

I too always use clamps.... however, I believe it voids the warranty.

I have Jim's MacDougalls as it were, the Breadalbane reproductions, not Atherton's.

The Canmore bag though has nice, solid grommets. You might try something inbetween hose clamps or bare by using automotive zip ties. It's crossed my mind before since they are black, very strong, and have a wide band that wouldn't dig into the grommet while still applying ample clamping force.
