Twice I've been bass drummer for pipe bands  You learn a lot just hanging around with pipers...  I'd love to learn to play, but pipes aren't cheap and I'm on a Social Insecurity budget.   I play pennywhistle and the fingerings are similar.  I found a guy who has plans to make small pipes using PVC for the drones and a penny whistle for the chanter.  I might give that a try, and turn them into cauld wind pipes rather bag blown.

Hulme, have you checked out some of the piping sites (I like Dunsire bagpipe forum). There is a "for sale" section where you could get a set of used pipes for a very decent price (I have had such luck!)s well as Facebook Small Pipes groups.

Ah!   Now this I can see and hear.  Beautiful job -- both on the pipes and assembling the photos...   I really love the cauld wind pipes.  They're much more 'personal' than the GHB, and as quiet as Shuttle Pipes and other small pipes...

Thanks Ken. Sounds like you're familiar with various small pipes. I'm new at it- going on three years.

Here is another attempt to attach a video.

It is my Small Pipes and dulcimer, playing "My Dashing Darling" (aka 'Will ye follow Charlie')

Something is amiss with the recordings  They're jammed over to the side, and I can't seem to get them to play.  I've played dulcimer with a Small Pipes piper myself; and you're right -- the combination can be magical...

I dont know how to edit my post.. ugh.  Any suggestions?

I have been learning the Scottish Small Pipes for about a year, and thought to make a recording of my piping and my Appalachian dulcimer together. The two seem to work nicely- hope you enjoy nod
