Re: pictures of your pipes

Less demand from instrument makers,including pipemakers, should mean less forest clearance by loggers in search of ebony trees for their chainsaws to supply that demand. What about less demand from musicians? A pipemaker will generally make an instrument only if he has a customer for it. If you spe...

FS: Hunter Pipes Bb chanter

I'm reluctantly selling my Hunter Pipes Bb (B-flat) chanter, made for me by Sam Lawrence in 2012. Asking US$1,950. Full details can be found on uilleannobsession.

Also, a YouTube clip of the pipes is available here.

Re: FS: 3/4 set of uilleann pipes in C

Bump.

I'd consider a part-trade for good quality drones and regs (or just drones) in B natural.

Re: FS: 3/4 set of uilleann pipes in C

Oops. Looks like I had uploaded the wrong sound file (a 1/2 set in B). I've corrected the error and the soundfile is now of the C 3/4 set.

Re: FS: 3/4 set of uilleann pipes in C

The Kiernan chanter has been sold separately.

The Whitmer body (drones, regs and bag, together with Hamon bellows), is for sale. Price US$3,000 (plus shipping).

I'm attaching a short clip of the chanter, drones and regs.

FS: 3/4 set of uilleann pipes in C

I'm reluctantly selling a 3/4 set in C (chanter by Matt Kiernan, drones/regs by Nick Whitmer). I have a full set in D and a few other flat chanters and just don't get to play this lovely set as much as it deserves. Full details are on uilleannobsession . http://www.uilleannobsession.com/for_sale/pat...

In September, we spent a day piping with Paddy Keenan and in October, we put on a small concert to coincide with International Day of Uilleann Piping. I'm hosting a meeting in my house on Sunday afternoon, May 25. If anyone is in the are...

Re: Diameter of Ezeedrone tenor reed.

I had the same experience trying to fit the Ezeedrone reeds to my Whitmer D set (stock made in 2005). The Bass and Baritone fit fine but the tenor is too large for the mortice in the mainstock. I also have a Whitmer C set (stock made in 2011) and curiously the Ezeedrone fits fine into the tenor and ...

Re: B flat chanter

Martin Preshaw's website has photos and soundclips of a Bb half set he made. Don't know if he's made others.

Also, I've seen a few Alan Ginsberg Bb chanters and sets come up for sale from time to time.

And I've seen at least one Bb half set by Chris Bayley.
