R.G. Hardie® Bb Pipe Chanter

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.

Available in either plastic or blackwood, this chanter is the perfect choice for pipers and pipe bands wishing to play in military tattoos and accompany other instruments.
