Classical repertoire on the pipes?

Howdy, folks! I'm familiar with Jerry O'Sullivan's work on his "O'Sullivan Meets O'Farrell" CDs, but am wondering if anybody else has any experience with adapting other Classical "art" music for the uilleann pipes? Context for my question... I'm lucky enough to be close to an amazing classical violi...

Re: Concert D set from Brad Angus? Anybody have one?

Hi all, I drove down to Brad Angus's place Wednesday morning and picked up my now-full set! It's absolutely gorgeous... Brad made me three regulators in ebony, brass, and boxwood, using Rowsome-like styling that fits beautifully with the Kirk Lynch bits I already had in my half set. The new regs hav...

Re: Concert D set from Brad Angus? Anybody have one?

Thanks Jarlath and Kmag, good to hear this feedback. I knew I liked his work, and had certainly never heard anything bad. I actually talked to Brad last night for quite a long time last night, got him excited about this project... looks like I'll probably end up going with him.

Thanks!

Concert D set from Brad Angus? Anybody have one?

Hi all, I'm shopping around for a pipe maker to build some regulators for my Lynch half set (in D). Brad Angus is one of my options. I've spent some time in his shop - he made me a B chanter last year that I absolutely love. I really like the guy and would love to give him my business, and If I were...

Fun toy: strobe tuner simulator

Hi all, I recently did some research on strobe tuners and, after discovering that I couldn't afford to buy a proper physical one, decided to invent a software version. It's here: http://danjony.com/daniel/StrobeTuner.zip Just unzip to a folder on your computer, plug in a microphone, and run StrobeTu...
