Moisture Control

As a general concept, "moisture control" means that a piper is trying to moderate the amount of moisture/condensation occurring inside the bagpipe. Water inside the instrument leads to (sometimes wildly) unstable tuning and other negative tonal effects. To control moisture, pipers often play for shorter durations, and/or implement water traps, and/or implement more complex moisture control systems.
