I have been playing Booth for eight years now. The set up that I am using now, and have used in the past, produces a sweet sound.

I got them and they sound great. I am using Henderson synthetic drone reeds and an Elliot chanter reed in my Dunbar poly Chanter. I use a Ross bag and I'm thinking of using Drone enhancers or Ash plugs. Any suggestions?

After you try the tone enhancers (ash plugs), you'll wonder how you got along without them. Not only do they make the cut-offs really sharp, they prevent accidental noise prior to the strike-in.

The main downside is, if you like to really squeeze most of the air out of the bag at the end of a tune to get a dramatic "end grunt", you can't do that with the plugs. No matter what, they just cut off clean.

Another slight downside is that you really have to keep the pressure up while tuning drones, or drones that you have shut off have a tendency to come back on. But this is a small price to pay for the above mentioned advantages.

I am considering purchasing some booth pipes or maybe Naill or Gillander. Most folks seem to like the Naill and said that they go from Booth to Nail. Is there a reason for this or is it just the name etc. With my tax money and some money I have saved 2-300 dollar difference isnt significant if Im getting a higher quality set of pipes.
Thanks.
