Well, I think the title of this thread says it all. This morning I picked my practice set up and spent about two hours getting "fitted" to them. I am right now borrowing a set from my teacher. It's really cool because the person who set me up with the pipes, is reed maker who makes reeds for Paddy Keenan!

I am truely serious. The guy's name is Ted Anderson, and Paddy Keenan did an interview and even mention him! Ted's a really great guy and I have to say his reeds are REALLY good. I wish I could send you a sample reed but I only have one reed myself, sooooo I kind of need it.

Is that so? Well that is really, really interesting, because I have sat and watched Paddy make reeds for himself, by hand, from scratch, using a penknife. Paddy doesn't need anyone to make reeds for him...Caveat emptor.

Now I am wondering if I got the name wrong. Becuase I thought Ted said Paddy "something" and I am sure it was Keenan. Oh well. I am only 15 and I have only played Uilleann pipes for two weeks. Well, my bad. I shall have to email him and get the exzact name.

He may have made a reed or two for Paddy, I could be wrong. Besides, at 15 years of age, you'll be kicking my butt on the pipes in a year or two.... go for it!!!

Well, I have to say I am not good at the bagpipes at all, but I am having too much fun to stop! I can almost play chanter's tune all the way through without messing up!
Quick Question: I was thinking of asking for the Mad 4 Trad Uilleann Pipe turtor for x-mas. Has anyone ever used it before? And if so what do you think of it?
