BG McCallum pipe chanter - blackwood

  • gandy chanter2After a very long time of remodelling and tweaking the product, Bruce is pleased to announce the 2016 version of the BG McCallum chanter (which started late 2014) is currently in production and ready for delivery.   Bruce has been playing the chanter for the last two seasons, and winning prizes at the highest level. The chanters are also in use by several other top and upcoming top players, and the results have been impressive. The chanter which suits several reeds types, including  Shepherd, Sound Supreme, Warnock/Chesney, Troy, G1, and McLellan. The hole diameter is smaller than before, and still larger than some other chanters, which allows us to get better projection. The high G is slightly flatter and I caution folks to be careful at the beginning of any new reed, as almost every reed I have tried tends to be sharp on high G until the reed gets a bit of play into it.    We have also raised the height of the A, B, and C holes. this is to make the "comfort level" better, but also allows us to raise the pitch ever so slightly. We then maintain the same base number (call it 480 on a tuner) without pushing the reed in quite as far, which should mean less tape on top hand.   NOTE: The price charged includes $15 for the PayPal fee.
