p²chanter

The p²chanter is an electronic musical instrument designed for bagpipe practice. In size and hole distance, it corresponds to a conventional (long) bagpipe practice chanter. But as its name implies, there is much more to it: just insert the optional pressure sensor, and your practice chanter turns into a unique electronic bagpipe chanter!

  • An accessory for your p²chanter to reduce slipping if the bottom of the chanter is placed on a slippery surface. The anti-slip ring fits onto the base of the p²chanter.
  • This optional pressure sensor module for your p²chanter converts your analog bagpipe into an electronic bagpipe. In this mode, sound generation is based on the air pressure measured by the sensor. This enables you to practice arm and blowing coordination together with finger technique. The pressure thresholds for chanter and drones are defined separately. Air consumption can be adjusted by turning the valve ring of the sensor module. When playing your bagpipe with the p²chanter, you can use its drones for accompaniment or mute them with corks. A special feature of the Pipe Chanter mode is Steady Blowing Training: the p²chanter monitors the pressure inside the bag and signals any deviation from the set value range. The sensitivity of the pressure monitoring is adjustable.

    The p²chanter is an electronic musical instrument designed for bagpipe practice. In size and hole distance, it corresponds to a conventional (long) bagpipe practice chanter. But as its name implies, there is much more to it: just insert the optional pressure sensor, and your practice chanter turns into a unique electronic bagpipe chanter! The stylish, comfortable instrument is equipped with built-in speakers and offers a selection of different sounds, such as Great Highland Bagpipe, Scottish Smallpipe (SSP) and whistle. Each sound was sampled from the actual analog instrument for faithful digital reproduction. The p²chanter features a headphone jack to facilitate practice anytime and anywhere without disturbing others – even on the bus!  The optional pressure sensor turns the p²chanter into a bagpipe chanter, transforming conventional bagpipes into electronic bagpipes. In this mode, sound production is controlled via the actual air pressure inside the bag. This allows you to practice fingering and blowing technique simultaneously, at the volume of your choice or via headphones. Air consumption can be adjusted by turning the valve ring of the sensor to create a realistic playing experience.
