Introducing the R. G. Hardie Blackwood Chanter, a chanter designed for pipers who enjoy playing at a slightly higher pitch.
The R. G. Hardie Blackwood Chanter has been designed to tune at a pitch of 480-482hz, depending on the type of reed used. In comparison to the Peter Henderson Blackwood Chanter, it will pitch 2hz higher using the same reed. This new Blackwood chanter has been in development for the past 4-5 years and will bring a different option for pipers looking to achieve a competitive advantage.
Have a listen here to Alastair Dunn having a tune on the R. G. Hardie Blackwood Pipe Chanter here, and Margaret Dunn having a tune on hers below.
