Now that you might have an endangered species in your pipe case, international travel will require more planning. If you're wondering how the new CITES designation of African Blackwood will affect you this season, visit the USFWS site on traveling with instruments containing CITES-listed species: https://www.fws.gov/international/permits/by-activity/musical-instruments.html

Sometimes drying bagpipes after a performance seems like a hassle, but Roddy MacLellan of MacLellan Bagpipes makes it look easy. The Lyons Bagpipes 5-brush set also speeds the process. With cold, wet parades coming up, this routine is extra-important.

Inspiring article to share with those friends who always say they want to learn the pipes! Congratulations to George, the Balmoral School of Piping & Drumming, and all the students on the very nice write-up!

It's like being in our showroom, but it's open all the time! Browse the online Smallpipe Showroom to hear and compare all styles. We have sets in stock from McCallum, Walsh, Gibson, and MacLellan, but some are the last we'll have before 2017!

Winter's coming and furnaces are getting turned on. Is your pipe case ready? Maintaining case humidity above about 45% keeps your pipes safer and ready to play. It also prevents hemp and mounts from becoming loose. Make sure to store moisture control canisters outside your case. Humidification solutions range from simple to tech-y: http://bit.ly/2fNc7NS

Still adjusting to the time change? This tune in a less common time signature is just for you! Craig Munro, with his Wallace Bagpipes, provides the fine piping.
