    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.

    What in the name of Tom McAllister Sr. has happened to the pipe band attack? Goodness, at any top-grade competition of any size you’re almost guaranteed to hear at least two bands completely eff up what was once a benchmark … Cont …

TIP OF THE DAY
Inflate and stoppering a bag for 30 minutes or longer to test for leakage is not necessary. A 20-second external inspection on an inflated bag will soon tell you if the bag is fully functional or not.
