I agree on the bagpipes. 40 seconds is my limit.

:lol: But that can be said of most instruments! Take violins, for instance. Something so beautiful can and will be turned into an orchestra of nails on chalkboard if not done right.  :P

I love bagpipes. There's a bagpipe band called Tartanic and they are awesome.

No, I only have a basic practice chanter. It's a workout for the lungs and is a way to learn the fingering, but I'd like to get one with better sound.

In this case "better" means "louder" so in theory, more cats.  ;)
