stop your mouth getting sore when piping

by Darcy
(Northern Ireland)


I am a young piper and when I play my bagpipe I have trouble playing it for a long time. My mouth gets a tingling feeling I have been trying to prevent this by taking a long drink of very cold water before I play but it will not stop, so every time I play two or three tunes my mouth goes tingly is there any way to stop this? if so what is it? please let me know soon.

Hello Darcy,
I suggest that you consult a medical Doctor about your mouth problem.

I have been piping for many years and have not heard of anything like this.
Perhaps you may have to look at a reaction to the blow stick material, I use a soft plastic sleeve on the moth part as my teeth tend to clamp on that area.
Would it be worth having a word with your dentist about reactive problems?. He may be able to ask around in his circle of colleagues and shed some light on the problem.
anyway good luck.
