Mike, would have to agree with the other poster about pitch as proved by the St. Thomas Alumni band this weekend.

The reason that the top bands sound better is because they are higher pitched and I think that 480 is the optimum pitch for the bagpipe as it sounds much cleaner at that range.

STB at 130 BPM sounds much better at 480 too! ;-)

Lets hope the massed bands learn something else, your point on Dunsires was missed!
