Since I'm making my own whistles these days, I've converted to BOAD - Bagpipe Obsessive Acquisition Disorder. Every now and then I have a wee breakdown over the atrocities being committed by my country and others, and the general state of the planet people my age will have to occupy for many years to come. My solution to these thus far has been to get profoundly drunk and buy a new kind of bagpipe.

I owe a Lindsay System SSP, a Hamon Sackpipa, and a Juro Dufek Flemish Pipe to this phenomenon.

No regrets.

Hi MadmanWithaWhistle

In my case it is UPOAD. Take a look at page 119 of the pictures of your pipes thread for evidence of that :lol:

My bodhran collection could also be added to the mix of obsessive acquisition. Whistles are cheap by comparison.

I bought one some years ago. Low price. It's a nice whistle and if I didn't have any other whistles I would be totally fine with just that one.
