"This new book covers all the technical aspects of maintaining and setting up the pipes, an area of a piper's life which I know from personal experience at school in Scotland many years ago to be almost as important as mastering the music... I would like to congratulate the Directors of The National Piping Centre who have given so much of their time to this project, and the expert staff whose years of accumlated experience at the forefront of the piping world are contained in this book." HRH The Prince Charles, Duke Of Rothesay, KG,KT,GCB (Patron).
