Thanks to everyone who completed our survey. The winner of the $100 gift certificate was Lachlann Bisallion of Ontario. Congratulations.

Many of those who took our survey said that they were not familliar with our current review function. Our goal is to get as many reviews as possible on each of our products to help you find the products you need. Feedback from fellow pipers/drummers is a great way to find what you're looking for.

Here are some of the current reviews:
Kinnaird Carbon Fibre Drone Reeds
"This is without a doubt one of the best drone reeds on the market today. I have used just about every drone reed available and nothing is as steady and air efficient as these are. They are very easy to work with and will seemingly last forever due to the high quality materials they are made of. They are extremely stable as well; once you lock your drones in they simply do not move and they seem to be impervious to moisture as well. AAA+"

Piper Flex Jacket
"We recently outfitted our band with navy blue piper flex jackets. They look great and are very comfortable to wear. The fit is excellent. We are very pleased with our choice of jacket."

How to Wear Highland Dress

You may know what to wear for Highland Dress, but do you know how to wear it? This list explains the correct way to wear your ensemble.

Hose- Kilt hose should be 2 to 3 fingers below the knee cap. There should be consistent length on the individual's sock turnover.

Sgian Dhus- The sgian dhus is normally worn down the right sock, although a left handed person could wear it on the left leg. Only the top inch should show above the sock.

Sporran - Clean and polished if necessary. The sporran should be worn in the front of the kilt, 3 fingers below the waist belt buckle. The strap goes through the loops on the back of the kilt under the waist belt. Drummers will need to wear the sporran to the side while playing, but should wear it to the front when not playing.
