I think I might try the Microvox Monitor idea now I'm playing with bass, percussion and loud (but superb) fiddle a lot more.

Piping in a pipe band was similar. With a dozen or so other pipers around you, theoretically all playing the same thing at the same time, if you could hear your own pipes it meant you were out!

Pipefest 2005 in Edinburgh was a strange experience. 9800 pipers and drummers formed up in a massed band. There was a Mexican wave effect as the tune started at the front right corner and kind of swept along the ranks and finished down at the left hand end. We were in the middle and it felt like we joined in as it went past us. A big and spread out session must have the same problem.
Music from the swamps of Louisiana, the bogs of Ireland and the Moss of Balloch!
