Tell us something.: I like pipes and other things involving music, like music and pipes. Reeds are an enigma. Though I can make violins, I can not make a reed.

Some fine piping in this documentary and interesting to hear Paddy talking about his reed making, just sand paper, a cylinder & scraping with a knife, no gouges. Long reed slips 6 inches, as Rowsome chanters were a mite short. I wonder if his Kohler chanter is also modelled on Paddy's Rowsome chanter.

Interesting to see him playing a flat set for the interview (recent) segments.
