Dimensions for a D Concert Pitch Bass Regulator

Post by FergMaun » Mon Jun 03, 2013 11:06 am

Looking for dimensions for my Andreas Rogge D concert pitch Detachable Bass-Regulator for uilleann pipes.

Originally the bass reg reed seat had the brass tubing to fit 3.2mm brass tubing staple.

I got Andreas Rogge to change the reed seat to fit 4mm brass tubing staple with the same type brass tubing like in the D chanter reed seat..

Why is the D Bass regulator reed so hard to get right in my Andreas Rogge Full Set as the the tenor and baritone reg reeds have no problems.

Slip length
head width
head length
Tail length
Scrape length
Staple length and eye width
Bridle placement
Over all length

Cheers

Why did you want to use a bigger staple in the bass reg?

I think that lower notes need a greater internal volume within the staple to allow them to sound louder and bring them into balance with the other regulators.
