That sounds great. Dang Fern, you know more tunes than I do. I play so many instruments that I never have time to learn more than about 8-10 tunes per instrument. I should probably devote more time ...

Are their any audio samples of any of these tunes. I'll do a search too. I've always had trouble with timing, so I learn a new tune easier if I can hear it played first. Seth

Olle is right, you don't want to throw the tube from a mountain bike on you chanter, you should look for racing bike inner tubes. You can find them anywhere here in the U.S.

I only heard that they make all chanters with a drilling master where each hole is marked. Then they just drill and make the read fit the pipes. As all pipes are (supposed to be) the same, the sho ...

True Olle it is carbon fibre in the chanter reed and some other synthetic material in the drone reed. I can't seem to remember what it is though. I'll post when I figure it out.

Newest Reed designs. The first set has a larger post so it will fit more easily into the larger bore of the G chanters. The longer reed is for those xtra-long low drones.
