This chanter is designed to play at 466hz, Bb (B flat) and is inspired by a 1970’s R.G. Hardie Pipe Chanter.
Compared to most modern pipe chanters that pitch in the range 480-486hz, it has a thicker profile therefore allowing the holes to be positioned for a comfortable playing position. The chanter has been optimised to use a standard modern pipe chanter reed rather than a long bladed Bb reed.
This chanter is the perfect choice for pipers and pipe bands wishing to play in military tattoos and accompany other instruments.
