By popular demand, I have added recordings of pipes I have made
as "clean flat" recordings. These were recorded with 2 fully panned
AKG C3000 mics about 2 feet apart with the pipes at a distance of about
1 1/2 feet. Other than the conversion to MP3, there is no processing
Each tune is played in 3 repeats. The first verse is chanter alone. The
second verse adds the drones. And the third verse adds regulators.
With all of that in mind, I request you somewhat overlook my
playing, which isn't phenomenal. And some extraneous noises occur, like
rumbling traffic, foot taps and room ambience. Focus instead on what I
these recordings to convey, and that is as accurate a representation of
the timbre and temperament, of the instruments I build, as possible.
feel free to give me feedback as to whether there is any way I can
these for you. (Keeping in mind that the playing is as good as it gets!)
