Be flat, or rather, Bb.

My band here in Lubbock, the Llano Estacado (and District) Pipe Band (LEAD Pb), has recently switched from playing at A 482 Hz to playing at A 467 Hz, otherwise known as Bb. It is a glorious pitch to play at. I’m playing some 1960ish Sinclair pipes with its original chanter with a Shawn Husk chanter reed. I’ve Selbie tenor drone reeds and a Redwood bass drone reed. I think I need to spruce up the tenors a bit to match the bass. Hear below and enjoy!
