Don’t see any label on the bag.

I’ve tried a few NOG chanters and was always pleasantly surprised. They are not the best looking chanters around but their tone is, in my opinion, better than Daye penny chanters, and NOG makes light pressure reeds, which tend to be easier for beginners.

It's visible in/on the clear plastic bag containing the extra reeds, in the second and fourth photos in the listing:

I think we all have a reed that is 'that's the ONE!'. And if we're fortunate, we may have another reed, 'that's t'other one', and a bag full of RLO's (reed like objects). :D

According to some people the Roman Empire still exists in the new form of the European Union. And in the UK it seems that the legend of Boudica is being hyped-up and repackaged for the young folks.

I don't buy it myself. I read a book a while back that kinda made out that the Ancient Brits really weren't very nice at all and that it was the Romans who were the good guys. Apparently the main reason that Julius Caesar decided to invade Britain was that he got totally p**sed-off by all those Celts coming over and causing trouble in Belgium and Gaul:- the ancient equivalent of the "booze cruise" from Dover to Calais I suppose.

The gusset on the bellows looks old and cracked. The chanter looks pretty good. I like the “Rowsome” look that Seth used to use.

Given the ubiquity of bagpipes across the bits of Europe and North Africa once under Roman control, I think it's more likely it would have been the Romans who were playing them

Contrary to popular belief Nero was actually playing the pipes as Rome was burning . Probably playing that old standard Irish tune, "Come on baby light my fire"

Michael Vignoles practice set on Ebay Ireland. Includes a metal box. It looks like the seller prefers local pickup from Leopardstown, County Dublin, but "may consider postage."

They must mean John Addison, I think.

There are some pictures of him making and playing a 'Lincolnshire bagpipe' on pp. 26-27 here:
