Hi Guys,

I'm selling a lovely Michael Dow Chanter in B:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dEYNEmhPh4

A maker more known for his amazing bellows, but he makes some very nice pipes too. Really lovely B chanter for sale, selling to fund restoration on some old pipes. Top quality chanter, great tone and expression you’d come to expect from a flat chanter. All the right harmonics and noises. Reed playing well and very responsive. Be great to see it go to a good home.

Based in Wales, UK, but will post at cost.

£400

PM me any questions, thanks.

Watched uTube rendition, chanter sounds badly out of tune to my ear, maybe a different reed might help

PM me any questions, thanks.

What is the overall length of chanter without chanter top.

Head length
Scrape length
Staple length and eye id 6- hobby tubing or handed rolled
Overall length of reed.

Best reed maker I recommend is Alan Burton in Cornwall. England. You can get him on Facebook.
