Re: 8th South Wales Tionol - Sept 29th/30th

Due to a personal commitment, Becky Taylor will not be able to join us at the tionol this year.

Instead we are pleased to welcome the great Dicky Deegan, who will join Martin Nolan as our two guest pipers for this year's event.

Hope to see you in Pontypridd in September!

I absolutely love these pipes, but as I have recently acquired a full set made by the Taylor Brothers themselves, it is t...

Re: Taylor style flat keys vs teardrop keys?

Personally I love my old Taylor style set. Love the look. Love the playability. Love the sound. I'd never go back. In terms of weight, the body of my set with its double bored bass drone, hollow main stock and folded-back bass reg is lighter than any of my previous concert pitch sets. That said, the...
