I know there's a lot of crossover players here, so can somebody advise me of a website that has a Fife forum similar to this type of forum?
When I put it in that search I just don't seem to get the results I'm looking for.
Thank you.

My guess would be that forums with extensive discussion of fifes might tend to be devoted to fife and drum corps? This might be okay to you (or, maybe that's precisely what you're wanting?), and such places might indeed have a lot of information on technique and maintenance and makers (I assume that's the sort of thing you're looking for), but if it's not historical type fifing you're looking for, I imagine you'd have to also sort through posts about drumming, marching, band politics, uniforming, history, locations, reenactments, travel, competitions (if such things exist), etc. But, you might not mind that.

Yeah that's pretty much it. I am interested in American revolutionary and Civil War type fife playing.
Also looking for my recommendations on types of fifes.
Since my post I have added Fife and Drum Corps to my search in that brings up some stuff but I'm just really surprised there's not some sort of obvious Forum board out there is as there is here

Look for Civil War, most likely to find what you want.

Here is a fife maker from CT, Musiquemorneaux by Joe Morneault who is also a history buff and quite likeable guy. Inquire thru website.

http://musiquemorneaux.com/

And you might add the key word "muster" during web searches.

Hope this helps.
