Re: newbies start here - New to the uilleann pipes?

Thank you everyone for your input. It was indeed a reed issue. My instructor put a new reed in the chanter and it's working much better. He's sending the other one back to the maker. And no, not scared off, lol. As a matter of fact this forum is the first an only forum that use to reach out to other...

Re: newbies start here - New to the uilleann pipes?

Hi, I haven't posted here in awhile, but I had a question that I think would be relevant to this topic... I found a great tutor in Washington D.C. since my last post and have had the opportunity (through him) to test a few different chanters. The chanter that came with my original set... had a real ...

I did however end up emailing Vignoles (very nice guy) and he reccomended I grip it at the base and "rock" the reed back and forth while pulling upward. I actually needed to go a step further and grip the base o...

Re: newbies start here - New to the uilleann pipes?

@awilde569 and PJ Thanks for the advice, yes I will probably just have to get in contact with Vignoles, I hate the idea that I might have to send the thing off to Ireland, but that might be my only option atm. @the plod I'm located on the Eastern Shore in Maryland... I didn't detect any kind of vine...

Re: newbies start here - New to the uilleann pipes?

Thanks for your suggestions PJ... I'll look into the plumbers tape for the ferrules...

Re: newbies start here - New to the uilleann pipes?

Hello there, new to the forum, though I'm glad I found it... excellent advice and an excellent resource.
