Goodlord! You're either a reedmaker's friend or his worst nightmare! That musette is really nifty though! How does she sound?

I suppose "a mdificazione" refers to the toneholes on the drone - have you got one or two? And, if it's two, would you give me the size and position???
Who made the Musette Bechonnet?

I've made/ bought/altered/destroyed plenty of reeds for all this stuff. My wife made me discard the 5-gallon drum of useless cane shavings, splinters + dead reeds: something about mold + fire hazards :wink:

Here's some links of me on the Bechonnet

I will (and remind me if I forget,ok?) but not until after the holidays: I dont want to take my drone apart as Im really busy playing Zampogna this month. :)

Mine is figure-8 shaped, it was originally 2 smallish holes together (like a recorder's double-hole for the right pinkie) but the connector piece broke & it became one hole.

I'm not a piper...just a fascinated fan of bagpipes. I DO play whistles but my lack of any kind of camera prevents me from defiling youtube with my non-traditional styles.

I do, however, have a few tunes up on whistlethis.com

Here are my three sizes of Highland pipes, what the 19th century makers called
No1 Great Highland or military bagpipe
No2 halfsize or reel pipe (today called 3/4 pipes)
No4 miniature Highland pipe (today called smallpipes)
The GHB is blackwood, fully mounted in hand-engraved aluminum, by Dunbar.
The reel pipe is ebony mounted in ivory and nickel, c1900, by Glen, with a Jon Swayne chanter in A in ebony with high B key.
The miniature pipe is cocus fully mounted in ivory, c1900, unknown Glasgow maker, with John Walsh chanter in A.

Just looking at those ivory mounts on that Robertson explains why elephants are endangered!
Kintailpipes: You might be interested in hearing about a custom double-chanter set of D smallpipes I had made years ago.
One chanter was for the upper hand, the other for the lower hand.
The great thing about the NSP is that it's a closed system, so this set, when played like a normal single-chanter set, sounded like a normal single-chanter set. But, at will, you could play notes on both chanters simultaneously for glorious harmony. It had the normal three NSP drones. This set was in D. I sold it years ago but I think I can find a photo of it to post.

I just received my mediaeval bagpipe made by Jens Güntzel. It received 2 plastic and one A. Donax reed with it. The Donax reed is a bit louder, but the plastic reeds play really good too! The drones also have synthetic reeds with glass fiber blades. There are 2 screws in the dronereeds, one for adjusting the strengt, you have to adjust it if you switch from plastic to Donax reeds. And another one for removing and replacing the blades if they get damaged.
Here are some pictures:
