A "gooey" substance that is used to "seal up" a hide pipe bag, making it fully airtight. Seasoning also has moisture-moderating properties which helps keep too much moisture from condensing on the reeds. To season one's bag, a moderate amount is poured through a stock, and then the substance is vigorously rubbed into the hide.

Andrew Douglas Andrew is a prolific practitioner of the bagpipe, having been active at the highest level of pipe bands, solo competition, teaching, and creative endeavors for the past 20 years. He's also the founder and creator of Dojo U and of PipersDojo.com
