    It’s called a busby and they used to be made of bearskin.

    For an extra five bucks, he’ll even play Amazing Grace as he inflates your tires.

    Thankfully, the source of the petro wasn’t illustrated.

    Might be easier to find a piper than a “gas station” that still has a compressor!!

    Since I KNOW people are picky, I;ll say it first…. He’s playing with the bag on the wrong side. And the chanter and blowpipe should be separate items; the blowpipe adds air, and the chanter hangs out of a separate attachment on the front of the bag. The chanter is where the fingers make the notes for the tune.

    He also forgot the sign: $2 for 10 minutes of air, $10 for 5 minutes of air, and $20 for 2 minutes.

    And yes, I DO like the pipes. I’ve played in a celtic band, but I can understand the terror some people have of the pipes.

    According to some sources, the Busby is a shorter, flatter version with a peak.

    Too right, mate! Last time I tried to fill a soft tire, it was -30ºC, and I went to five stations, lost another 5 lbs of pressure with the one hose I found, then gave up and used my bicycle floor pump to fill the tire. Haven’t used a gas station hose for a car since!

    I used to play my clarinet in the bathroom to enhance its resonance; don’t imagine you have to do that with the pipes.
    Probably wouldn’t be advisable, anyway; might overload your sensory organs.

    Can you play your own? When you can, you can call it whatever you want.

    I like them, but I like droning and resonant strings etc. Give me quarter tones and I’m happy.

    There used to be a guy here in Plymouth (UK) who practised his pipes in his lunch break down by the Barbican. That was in the early 80s. If you’re out there, give us a bit of pibroch!
