Scottish Humor

A rabbit from Scotland invited a rabbit from England to come back with him to his home. On the way there, they had to pass through a stretch renowned for its fierce birds of prey. What did the Scottish rabbit say to the English rabbit?

 "You take the high road, and I'll take the low road."

The Importance of the Piper's Pal Recharge Kit

Recharge kits
are available for each of the Piper's Pal Products.  We recommend recharging your Piper's Pal about once a year.  The purpose of the recharge kit is to keep the Piper's Pal operating efficiently to keep your reeds in optimal playing condition. 

If you don't recharge your Piper's Pal, your reeds could be susceptible to moisture build up resulting in mildew. 

Before putting the recharge kit into your Piper's Pal, be sure to dispose of the old contents, disassemble the trays and wash in warm, soapy water, then rinse and dry. Follow the instructions to ensure you are putting the contents in the correct location and adding the correct amount of water.

Recharging your Piper's Pal will ensure a long life for your Chanter Reeds.

Gaelic Themes Piper Brogues
(In stock in sizes 5-10.5)

"Good quality shoes that hold up to wear and tear well. The only downside is that the metal heel tack tends to make the shoes heavy."

"I got these to avoid wearing out my super comfortable Gaelic Themes leather soled Ghillies. I now have no fear of doing that, these are all that I am wearing. These are, without a doubt the most comfortable shoes that I own."

"These are so comfortable to march in long parades with. Look great too!"
