Here is a picture of me having a go at it with the man himself (Patsy Touhey). I'm sure the old boy was rolling over in his grave!

I doubt it, you do his memory honor by playing at his grave.

Got my Pat Stones Rosewood D narrow bore chanter back from Andreas Rogge workshop in Germany on Tuesday 14 Feb 2008.

1 new chanter top in cocobolo and boxwood/brass.
1 new chanter reed and 1 hours reworking chanter.

I am very pleased with the rework on the chanter. Just have to rework the Rogge reed a bit.

The reed I made with the original rolled staple by Pat Stones before I sent the chanter to Germany works great in the chanter

Will the cocobolo wood darken after a few months/years.

Cheers

This is the D narrow bore chanter before I got my hands on it from Pat Stones back in October 2006

Image

Now the Pat Stones D narrow Bore chanter after Andreas Rogge did the hours reworking on it.

Image

I sent Andreas Rogge a quick email asking "What did you do for 1 hours reworking on the Pat Stones D narrow bore chanter."

Got email back today from Jens at Rogge workshop.
Andreas changed the bore little by little and adjustet fingerhole size and
undercuttig accordingly.
The cocobolo will darken considerably during the next few months.

Best
Jens

What? No sound samples? Can't be a REAL chanter unless it can do a chicken crossing the road :mrgreen:

Congratulation Tommy. If it meets your expectation, it must be quite a stick.

I've seen this set of drones up close and in person, the photo does not do them justice. Nice work Tommy!

My Christmas gift to myself - a new concert pitch chanter by Nick Whitmer. Here's a photo of the new chanter with the rest of the set he made for me - Drones from 2005, tenor and baritone regulators from 2006 and bass regulator from 2007.

Image

The chanter has 4 keys and Nick's own design stop valve. Nick very kindly agreed to make a few modifications to the exterior of his chanter for me. Specifically, he flared the bell end (similar to the design of the end of the baritone and tenor drones) and added a ferrule and mount to the top of the chanter (similar to the regulator ends).

Image

Thanks Nick.
