Greetings,

My name is Patrick and I am new to these boards. I live in Keswick VA, and was gifted a pipe and some tobacco. I really like forums and one of the first things I do when I acquire a new hobby is to find a forum. I have been lurking here for a few days and decided to register.

A little about me. I am 31 years old and recently married. My wife and I have a 7yo daughter. I play the banjo for a living and my wife is a nurse.

I have a question. The pipe I was gifted is a 2007 Peterson SPD with a nickel band. What is the proper nomenclature for this type of pipe in regards to the bowl shape, bend, etc,etc..

Thank you all for reading and I hope to prove a useful contributing member here.

Welcome!

On your Peterson pipe there should be a number that designates the shape. Like 80s is their bent bulldog, 150 is their straight bulldog. Give us the number and we should be able to tell you the common name for the shape. Also here's a common shape chart for Peterson pipes.

The 03 is usually called a full bent apple.

Welcome and good move on marrying a nurse. My wife is also a nurse and no matter where we move in the world, we know she'll get a good job. Now if only the same was true for teachers!

Welcome RB-5! Glad to have you on the BoB! I hope that it's Bluegrass you're picking on that banjo! Is it a Gibson RB-5 that you refer to in your user name?

Enjoy! cheers

Hey there!

I mess w/ the banjo somewhat too but I really haven't given it much work in the past years (read: I'm terrible). I see your near Charlottesville, I love that area. My father grew up in Covington County, and me on the coast by the Bay so I am pretty familiar w/ the area.

Welcome to BoB. I am somewhat new too but there is a great community of people here.

Hey LAEarle!

I am right outside Charlottesville (12 miles) on the side of a mountain. It's a great city with a pretty good local music scene. If you ever want any tips or tricks with the old 5 string you just let me know.

I know enough to get me in trouble, I suppose. And I love bluegrass. It's not a bluegrass band (in my opinion) without a banjo. What style do you play? Any clawhammer in you?
