New Note as of January 29, 2008: PLEASE!
PLEASE! Do not allow any other pipemaker, instrument repair technician,
or just guy-thinks-he-knows, etc. alter any chanter of my make. Also, do
not let any one repair, modify or upgrade one of my sets, regardless of
stated qualifications, without my explicit consent. Up until now, I have
been nice enough to reverse alterations, and replace hacked chanters at
no charge. Because such instances have recently become epidemic, and bad
for me economically, this policy will no longer be observed and I will charge
full price for such reversals and replacements.
