        These are Gilliland & McLeod pipes, with a Bannatyne Hybrid WMC zippered bag, and a Naill poly chanter (I do have the McLeod ABW chanter also). I am using EZ Drones, and just about have them dialed in, still a bit more to do. My mouthpiece is a bit long, so I am looking into options. The tone is very nice and rich.

          I cut mine shorter and added an Ergonomic Mouthpiece from Reed Wrangler. I never play without mine these days.

            I found a shorter mouthpiece from Bagpiper Bob on ebay, and also ordered the Reed Wrangler one based on your recommendation.

              Greetings, wolfhawaii, Andrew, and to All,

              For those in our mob--and for whom the Reed Wrangler Mouthpiece--cited by
              Andrew above--may still be--not as yet known--please allow me an immediate
              and Wholehearted--re-re-re-recommendation--for it!! :-)

              It helps to ease--the mouth and neck--which aids the fingers :-) --it extends
              Playing Time--it eliminates--chomp downs on the blow pipe--which saves both
              blowpipe--and teeth!!

              And--all--for very--minimal funds!! :-)

              I would suggest--if I may--that even if you don't think you need one--that you
              send off for one anyway--give it a try--and prepare to be surprised--at how
              much Help--it gives you!!

              And--if you don't like it--just please just let me know--and I shall happily buy it
              from you--postage fees and all. :-)

              Regards to All,

              Pip01

                I'll throw my vote in on the Reed Wrangler mouthpiece. I love mine.

                  The 3" mouthpiece i got from Bagpiper Bob was just the right length, screwed onto the threads nicely, and has a rectangular mouthpiece with soft rubber over the metal which makes for a nice grip. Now to get my arm and lips into shape again! Also, I was having trouble getting the Naill chanter to tune, so I am using the G&M blackwood chanter atm, it has a nice tone.

                    I have tried a few different mouthpieces over the 42 years I’ve been playing my G&M pipes. I like the Fraser Warnock the best. ( and I love that McLeod chanter, too !)
