The website is up now, and there are lots of videos and info on the pipes, and I am very impressed with what I see and hear.

This is brilliant! Great prices too! :D I think I’ll pull the plug and get a set.

Pardon my miserable ignorance. What is the difference between reelpipes, smallpipes, and Great Highland Bagpipes?

Great Highland Bagpipes (GHB) = the loud, mouth-blown pipes just about everyone associates with Scotland.
Reelpipes or border pipes (effectively the same thing) = narrower conical bore, usually bellows-blown, not so loud, but still plays in the same octave.
Smallpipes = narrow cylindrical bore, almost always bellows-blown, sounds an octave down (because of the bore) and is the quietest of the three.

Another video from the website...this one is for the practice set but gives a very good example of the chanter by itself. I think whatever they have done, they did right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... e=emb_logo

While learning to play Uilleann pipes you'd think Fred would've learned to pronounce Uilleann correctly .

Would that be the Connaught or Munster pronunciation? :twisted:

I don't think its anything to do with what might be considered a regional accent, it just that Fred is pronouncing the first syllable "ooh" instead of "ill" which would turn union pipes into onion pipes which wouldn't sound half as nice, never mind the smell.
