Pictures of Your Pipes

Post by Lorenzo »

My first set of pipes...a vintage full set in D, made by Frank McFadden (the elder), Belfast, Ireland.

A Charles Roberts full set in D, made in 2002, pictured with the old McFadden chanter.

A ¾ Koehler & Quinn set in B made in about 1999 (?).

A Seth Gallagher ½ set in B made in 2004.

A 5/4 set in B by Alain Froment, 2002, Stainless Steel, Ebony, Faux Ivory.

edit note: picture host went belly up. Sorry about that.
Oh well, after nearly 300,000 hits this thread probably
has outlived its usefulness.

I know that pic Lorenzo, it's a good one! Nice toys. You were a surfer for 7 years? Wow, who would have guessed.

Thanks, macpipes. Unfortunately they are already 5 years old, and Wolfhounds don't live too long. But they love the pipes! Really, they can sit and sleep through several hours of piping CDs.

Good initiative, Lorenzo, and I'll contribute my own thumbbnail self-portrait when I've a little more time (it's getting near bed-time on this part of the world).

So who has the most sets of pipes, and how come you got so many? Show us some pics...

Or, who has more instruments than Lorenzo, and I don't mean whistles.

It would be a treat to see what the rest of you are playing. If you don't have a web site, or a current pic up and running somewhere on the net, use an internet dating service, or something similar, to post pictures on the net--some are free and let you change pictures all the time. Then copy them over here like this:

Find your pic on your internet site, place the cursor on the pic, right click for menu, left click on properties, find and copy the URL-http address, then paste it on this page..then type img(insert address here)/img. The letters "img" and "/img" must each be in seperate brackets like these [ ]........[ ] like bookends.

See FAQ above for more details on image transfers.

ChristianRo, I sent you email about your coding to make image visible, or as a link to your page. Nice looking set of pipes, by the way.

Susan, I think 400 acres from the nearest living mammal would suit everyone fine at this point in my piping endeavour :smile:

Cheers,
