We have a range of practice chanters to suit all abilities and budgets.
Practice chanters are available in either Blackwood or plastic and adorned with a decorative ferrule and/or sole. The sole protects the bottom of the chanter, which is more applicable to a Blackwood chanter.
We offer practice chanters in three sizes – junior, standard and long. Junior is designed for children aged 10 years and younger, whereas a standard or long chanter can be played by all ages. The long version closely resembles the profile of a pipe chanter and is lower in pitch compared to a standard length chanter.
We have introduced innovative features to improve the performance and durability of our practice chanters, including Twist-Trap moisture control and a plastic lining system for blackwood tops. Over many years we have refined the sound of the chanters to play at different pitches and balance the individual notes for writing and playing three and four part harmonies. Our standard chanter pitches at B flat and the long at concert A pitch however this also depends on the reed selection and set-up.
By request, we can supply full hand engraved silver practice chanters with prices available by getting in touch through our contact form.
