Hmmm... The container full of giant spiders I keep in the freezer? They keep my frozen ferret company (I had her put to sleep years ago, but didn't have the money for cremation). Or my wall of skulls. Maybe that.

I read this as "Everything is going accordion to plan" and saw nothing wrong with it.

As seen in another thread here: I wear both a pocket watch and a wrist watch. I also carry no less than 2 additional wrist watches in my bag incase one stops working or I'm in the mood for a change mid day. They're all mechanical.

I have a fair knowledge of performing with bagpipes or an electically powered bass guitar if so needed.

Yes, and we're waiting for you to build the life-sized, working model. Laughing

I show up to the office dressed in long skirts, a (Neo)Victorian shirtwaist, boots, watch and watch pin, and a fancy dress hat perched on my freshly curled hair, and smelling faintly of roses. For some reason, people keep looking at me oddly.... Very Happy (I feel underdressed, though, as I've forgot my gloves at home.)

How difficult would it be, do you think, to wire up a set of bagpipes with electrical pickups?

Post  VonHart on Wed Oct 22, 2008 11:58 pm

well, bagpipes use reeds to make the noise, so they need the movement of air in order to make any sound. You could easily use a woodwind microphone (or several, rather) to run to an amplifier and wire it up, but it would not be an "electric bagpipe" merely a mic'd one.

That being said, Yamaha does make some electric woodwind instruments as midi controllers, I suppose you could use the same airflow sensors on all the drones and the chanter and get the same effect as a "silent" electric bagpipe, but it'd be expensive.

Of course Roland made an electric accordion, so it may be in the works somewhere. you never know.
