We’ve all been there.  Sitting at table practice, everything is rocking along well and then a late piper arrives and (as usual) their practice chanter sounds crap.  Reedy, thin and hugely out of tune!  Then you are trying to get through some difficult harmony part and it’s no good – the bad chanter is throwing everyone off.

Hylands have come up with an ingenious solution – the tunable practice chanter.  This instrument has an adjustable thread in the neck for easy tuning and is easily adjusted to flatten or sharpen the overall pitch.  It features:

  • an imitation ivory sole with stainless steel ferrule and mouthpiece ring.
  • reverse threaded mouthpiece
  • threaded reed seat
  • countersunk holes with pipe chanter spacing on a standard size practice chanter
