    That Shooters” band should have a wee listen to the 78th at Kincardine on YouTube. THAT is how a “D’ is SUPPOSED to sound!”

    Well done to Peel – continually improving! Nice playing. Please switch to Sinclair chanters though. You’d go to another level, tonally speaking. The current chanter sound is brassy and harsh. Just goes to show that the ‘precribed control’ of the MSR event is still the best indicator of where a band is at regarding music – i.e. technique, interpretation, phrasing and expression.

    Ahhhh, I hear it was part of a little sponsorship thing, and was only worn afterwards for the beer tent. Well done boys. Was a little scared one of the best uniforms in piping was being nascar’ed up.

TIP OF THE DAY
Do not be frightened to throw out synthetic reeds. Like everything else they have a shelf life and you can hang on to them for too long. If your drones start to become unsteady – bite the bullet.
