What if you have played the pipes your whole life but you are at an age with a medical condition that makes it impossible for you to blow or squeeze?

In the last 25 years, I have taught older adults to play the bagpipe.  A lot of them unfortunately gave it up when they couldn’t develop enough strength to blow a full set of pipes.  It’s sort of the old adage “if you think you can’t, you won’t.”  Some gave it up because they were frustrated, because it didn’t happen fast enough.  

I had a student who injured her shoulder and wasn’t able to squeeze the bag anymore.  Another suffered from COPD and was able to play his practice chanter.  He could even blow a set of small pipes.  He wanted to play the big pipes in the worse way.  At that time there wasn’t a solution to this problem.  How there is.  

I just saw this product last week and thought; Wow!  Here is a product that eliminates blowing, squeezing and moisture problems.  It weighs 4.5 lbs and blows a steady stream of dry air for up to 2 hours!  It is activated and deactivated with a simple puff of air and runs on a nickel cadmium battery.

I’m not saying that every bagpiper should own one of these.  I’m a traditionalist at heart, however if the time ever came that I physically couldn’t play the bagpipe, I would definitely consider investing this option.  I still get to make music and not be physically exhausted or do additional damage to an injury that took me out of blowing and squeezing the pipes originally.  Would you be willing to invest $799 plus shipping to be able to play your pipes again?
