Colum Faris's Product Reviews

  • Kinnaird Carbon Fibre Drone Reeds The best drone reeds I have used, December 2nd, 2010
    I have used five brands of synthetic drone reeds over the years and these are by far the beat. They work equally well with my ancient Hendersons and my new Naills. They are rock steady and once tuned they lock right in and stay in tune.
  • Simon Fraser University - Down Under CD Fantastic concert CD, December 2nd, 2010
    This is an excellent CD with a good variety of classic and contemporary tunes. Great MSR!
  • Plain Yellow Hemp A must have for my pipe box, December 2nd, 2010
    Lay your unwaxed hemp wraps side by side and seal off with bees wax. This gives the most airtight fit in my stocks.
  • Pull Through Swab , December 2nd, 2010
    Every pipe case should have one of these. Pull through your drones, especially after a winter parade or playing in the rain.
  • Reed Absorb , December 2nd, 2010
    What a great invention. It keeps those nasty drips from ruining your new copy of the Scots Guards. It works!
  • Scots Guards , December 2nd, 2010
    Buy volume one before buying any other music collection. Then, when you can, buy volume two.
  • This book is essential to the serious piper. The CD is an excellent accompaniment. Improves your fundamentals!
  • College of Piping Tutor Part 1 , December 2nd, 2010
    Want to learn how to play the bagpipes? Buy this book and find a good instructor. Then practice, practice, practice.
  • This is a great pipe bag. I like the feel of a hide bag, it is more substantial and balances the pipes on my shoulder better that a regular synthetic bag. It is airtight, drone stocks are easily installed, and the zipper gives access do whatever you want inside the bag, like drying it out or installing a moisture control system.
  • Naill DN4 Bagpipes , December 2nd, 2010
    I love my Naills. They are such good value because the drone sound is fantastic, and the workmanship is top quality, and the price is right. This is a beautiful instrument.
  • Robert Mathieson Books , December 2nd, 2010
    Robert Mathieson has written many of the great contemporary tunes over the past 20 plus years. They are all here I this great collection.
  • This recording has it all. Fantastic solos, adult, trio, and some of the best pipe band playing you will ever hear. An excellent example of the best band of the late 90's (and the last decade).
  • Kinnaird Kanister Moisture Control Works well, but a little heavy, December 2nd, 2010
    I bought this system several years ago. It is very effective absorbing any moisture but I find it a little heavy to play my pipes comfortably.
  • Plain Yellow Hemp A must have for my pipe box, December 2nd, 2010
    Lay your unwaxed hemp wraps side by side and seal off with bees wax. This gives the most airtight fit in my stocks.
