In that case, as you're across the pond, I'm thinking these pipes were made over there.

....also, our Northern English humour can be confusing to people, even in England!

I'm from Liverpool mate. Though I agree about the pipes perhaps being from the States—with the bag, I suspect someone with some uilleann pipe experience.

O dear, another cock-up, by me! In that case, disregard my last post.

"Here is a question. If my recently and tenuously gained understanding is that a G set is generally the set for playing with other instruments, what is a D set most useful for (which I would have guessed would be most useful for playing with other instruments)? Is it simply a pleasant key to play in, dropping everything down that happens to be reasonably useful for playing with other instruments?"

Besides the lovely tone of a good D set, its pitch range is good for a lot of voices; you need a very good soprano/tenor to double a G set, and dropping the pitch less than a tone to F+ is not enough for mortals, let alone altos and basses. Dropping to D is much more forgiving.

Merry Christmas,

John

Actually f# pitch is ideal because it is c# when played in D. As for a D set, you'll been in D when in 1# and A when in 2#'s. As for other instruments, stringed instruments will be ok but keyed ones will have difficulty transposing. The D chanter is ideal for players with fingers that can't fit on a G chanter.
