Don't know about the key but I'd bet big Davy's house that the maker is Eugene Lambe.

I would say it's a Matt Kiernan chanter but The top is probably by another maker.

Aye. The blocks and turning are a total giveaway - unless it's the mystery maker who copied the Kiernan style, loads of whose chanters have been on Ebay lately. Come to think of it, I have an old mate with a Kiernan B flat which has a kinda similar (weird) top, with a long bent inlet tube.

My reason for thinking that the chanter is the work of Eugene Lambe is that in the book "Irish traditional crafts" there is a chapter about Mr Lambe and on page 104 there is a photo of this very chanter hanging from a shelf with the caption ,chanters awaiting completion .Of course it still doesn't prove that he actually made it.
