PRICE £499.00 + P & P Reed included.

Note that D chanters are quite different from F chanters, and some people prefer them. Besides pitch, the main difference is in playing technique, which uses the finger pads for the right hand lower notes. Close observation of players on Youtube confirms this to be the case. Notes available on the seven-key chanter are A B C# D E F# G G# A A# B C# D E F#.

The pipes arrived here on Wednesday of last week and I haven't put them down since. B. MacM (Nova Scotia)

It is sounding fine and it's great having the keys - the C# especially! S. P. (London)

I can play them now... I've only used the plastic reed so far but it plays easily, the bellows work well, and I'm off and running. H. E. (USA)
