Regarding the question of pitch, it is all a matter of whether one is
   playing on one's own or playing with others. If playing solo, it
   doesn't really matter what the pitch is. The problem comes when trying
   to play with others. Then, it's just a nuisance that the pipes aren't
   in true F. Personally, I think that pipe makers should grasp the nettle
   and start to make pipes consistently in F, then they could be a true
   transposing instrument.
