I'm re-dipping into uilleann pipes and I'm curious as to which modern makers make a thinner style chanter (concert pitch). I've owned bulky chanters in the past and my hands just down seem to work as well. A friend of mine owns a Kohler? chanter which plays so well, and I think I'd like to find something similar.

You might want to contact Andreas Rogge. He makes a narrow bore D- might suit you.

I think he's looking for a thinner outside profile, not bore?

Tim Britton for a thin chanter, (mine had scalloped tone holes), and amazing reed. http://www.skep.com/britton/

Then you might consider some of the makers that have studied extensively under David Quinn; Martin Preshaw, Chris Coe, and Makoto Nakatsui are three that I know of.

Martin Preshaw was very overweight for years but he took up running and lost loads of weight and is now quite thin, so he's your man. Brad Angus also looks quite thin .

There's at least one Coyne chanter that is quite narrow (in profile). I believe some (living) makers have made reproductions of that or similar.

I have a Hunter chanter that is 14.5mm wide around the top hand. That’s pretty skinny! It’s made out of Lignum Vitae so pretty hard stuff.

Silly me, funny how the mind works. I read it as modern chanters from thin makers .
This is possibly the thinnest a chanter can be. Made by Johnny Doran I wonder what it sounded like .
