Ok, this seemed to be a pretty popular topic in the past, so here goes,

made by Kirk Lynch, mopane chanters with box wood mounts in D and C
Drones in cocobolo with cherry mainstock, regs pending. They aren't so shiny anymore, though.......

Yeah, Kevin. That's the one. What did Kirk tell you about it? BTW, you going to St. Louis this weekend? I tried to get Kirk to drive in with me just for the craic, but he's had some stuff come up.

Same deal here, I have commitments this weekend. Well maybe not the same deal. Kirk has way better excuses than me. Sucks to be him right now. I hate to miss this weekend...the crayfish at the Broadway Oyster Bar are calling to me. Probably just as well, that stuff isn't good for me.

Re: that C chanter...Kirk told me a little about it. It's based on the one Tom had that Earl's playing now, right? I haven't talked to those guys in next to forever. How's the chanter going for you? k

Hi Joe

I still have the Rogge C snakewood set and waiting for Andy May to return from this trip to Germany. He gave me a Cheque for £150.00 deposit before he when to Germany so I could hold on to the pipes until he got back.

Cheers

Ah, I see. Well, that gives you a little more quality time with her before she goes then.

this is a kirk lynch set...i bought it used from a friend. the chanter was made in 90 and the drones were made in 94....i guess ive never tried to clean the stock and drones. i kind of like that grungy look.

Fergmaun,

Those are three nice sisters. Were they all made by Rogge? I'm starting to like the fruitwood chanters. That B looks like a monster - what do you feed it?
