  • The pipes are in the well?

    Just a heads up for anyone looking for old pipes. Might involve caving and diving down a well.

        As a piper, I'd get pretty nervous if someone volunteered that they had a rope.

            Brings up the question as to what kind of bagpipe as that's in Galloway, not the Highlands. Though perhaps the piper was part of the Highland Host in 1678 and got lost.

              Hmmm..... bagpipes... have been made in
              all of the U. K... and for a very long time...
              but at the first... starting out with the older...
              two-drone variety...

              Ergo... might be a bit the easier... to haul them
              up... out of the deep... ... if... findable...

                I'm currently experiencing the financial crunch of saving up for my first set of pipes. I would certainly not hesitate to go spelunking for a set of pipes. Insane? Committed to the craft? I'll let you lot decide.

                  I've been ruminating on this since the first post and can't hold it in any more ...

                  This sounds like it belongs in an episode of "Lassie". I can just see it now...

                  Woof!
                  What's the matter girl?
                  Arf arf woof! Whine, arf woof!
                  What's that! Y' say MacDougall's gone and chucked his pipes down the well?
                  Whine, whine, woof, arf woof!
                  Gosh. It's a good thing he didn't fall in after them! Sounds like a good start though!

                      Touché! I will, however, point out that I'm still on the practice chanter. I haven't fully committed to the madness yet. Although I did hop on a fantastic deal to obtain a set of like-new Shepard smallpipes. I suppose I'm fiscally invested at this point if nothing else. Past experience tells me that purchasing shiny new toys and accessories is a slippery slope....one that I probably shouldn't climb as a poor grad student.

                      Back to the piping well!

                      Cheers,

                        It's only 22 feet deep so a few bass drones hemped together with a hook on the end should do it?
