Practice Chanter With Reed

Instruments | Bagpipes

Publisher: Stentor
Format: Instruments | Instrument
A practice chanter is an instrument in its own right, but its primary purpose is to provide a path to playing the bagpipe itself. Later it provides a convenient way to practice new tunes, complex fingering and so on, especially at times when practicing on a full pipe is impractical.

This quality Practice Chanter with Reed has an excellent tone quality, providing you with a superb sound. Playing this practice Chanter will be the perfect start to learning the Bagpipes.

      It's out of tune. The high G is G#, not G, and the E is about 1/4 tone sharp. I guess you get what you pay for particularly if made in Pakistan or wherever.

      Good afternoon Dirk, Thank you for your feedback I have contacted our purchasing department and they will contact the supplier direct, I can send you a replacement but if yours is not right there's a chance the replacement will be the same. so if you would like to return this to us for a full refund please email me back and we can arrange this. My sincere apologies for this. Kind regards Karen

      Good afternoon Dirk, Our purchasing department has contacted the supplier Direct their response is as follows;

      ‘’This isn’t an issue we have come across before. The pitch of a chanter is adjustable by moving the reed up or down in the chanter. They are a fairly sensitive instrument and do take some fettling to get right- see the links below for more information.

      A good overall product. Good quality, and good tone. Some basic instructions/guidelines would have been nice, though, as proper handling of the reed is quite important, apparently! I am enjoying trying this instrument.

      I think the saying you get what you pay for proves the point with this. For the price it is good quality. But I wish I had paid more and got a better instrument which is what I have decided to do now. If you want a basic not great sounding instrument this is fine. If you want better quality pay extra it will be worth it.
