chanterStrathmore Wooden Pipe Chanter



The Strathmore pipe chanter is designed by Murray Henderson. Played by Murray and other top pipers, it has won prestigious awards in solo competitions in Scotland and throughout the world.


It is an easy-to-reed chanter and sits very comfortably around the pitch of 480Hz (453Hz), the range most popular with the world's top solo players. You can go higher or lower with reed selection and use of tuning tape. Should you have a specific pitch in mind, Murray can tailor a chanter to your requirements. 


The finger spacing was designed to give the player a comfortable, natural finger spread.

The chanter was reviewed by Bill Livingstone (world renowned soloist and P-M) for pipes |drums magazine, and you can read all the good things he had to say here.
