Q: What replacement valve do you need for the maxistick
A: You can use the Airstream blowpipe replacement valve with this.
Q: Just want to confirm that a standard McCallum bagpipe mouthpiece will screw onto the MaxiStick blowpipe.
A: It is very close. You would need to build up the threads on the maxi stick a but with teflon tape, but that should do the trick!
Q: Just want to make sure this will fit my McDougall pipes, circa 1880-1900?
Likely the one without the imitation ivory.
A: Yes, this will work with your bagpipe! I would suggest the black projecting mount as I don't think that the imitation ivory will come close enough to match the mounts on your bagpipe.
Q: Just want to make sure what length I am measuring. Do I measure the entire length of the blowpipe? Or just the length of the smooth portion?
I just want to be sure. Thanks!
A: When you measure for a replacement blowpipe, you will measure it from the bottom of the projecting mount (not including the hemped area that fits into the blowpipe stock) to the tip of the mouthpiece!!!
Q: Does the MaxiStick blowpipe come with the mouthpiece? If not, then it is safe to assume that the length selection is for the blowpipe only?
A: Yes, there is a round mouthpiece included with the Maxi Stick!!!
Q: MaxiStick blowpipe. How is the length measured? From bottom of projecting mount, is mouthpiece included in measurement?
Also, do you have small cleaning swab for 3/8" diameter blowpipe?
thanks, Doug Hubbard
A: The blowpipe is measured from the bottom of the projecting mount (not including the hemped piece that goes into the stock) to the tip of the mouthpiece. We don't have a swab, but the chanter brush will do a fine job!
