What Kennedy are we talking about and why did you say that he didn't make great pipes?


Maybe I jumped the gun, but I assumed (always a bad idea) the Kennedy mentioned in the OP was a Maurice Kennedy Chanter, but maybe a chanter by some other Kennedy.
I never said that Maurice Kennedy didn't make great pipes but I never heard anyone say he did either. The only piper I know who played Maurice Kennedy pipes on recordings was Tomas O'Canainn. So here you can decide for yourself.

PS (The only piper I know who played Maurice Kennedy pipes on recordings was Tomas O'Canainn.) On seconds thoughts thats open to correction, it could have been a Crowley set.

AFAIK, Tomás played a Crowley set with a Kennedy chanter.
All the old Finbar Furey recordings (pre 1976) were played on his Kennedy set.

Anyone have any more information? I am enjoying this thread. Anyone know which Rowesome chanter that Tom copied? I am going to start making reeds soon for my chanter, nervous endeavor.

Why don't you contact Tom and ask him? All of my experiences with him are positive and he's a very friendly person. In the US, Miami-based Kinch O'Kaine, who used to contribute lots to this forum, is an expert on making reeds for Aebi chanters and, apparently, is a friend of Tom.

Well, which Rowsome chanter did Tom use as the model for his Rowsome-styled chanter?

I own an Aebi - C Chanter. Tom made it for me two years ago. It's a very nice instrument. I like the mellow sound and it's wonderful sounding hard E. The chanter plays very well in tune, also in the dry continental german wintertime.
