Now you can tune your chanter very quickly by simply turning the tuning dial to raise or lower your reed - while you continue to blow your pipes!
CRAFTED BY McCALLUM
The perfect collaboration between McCallum Bagpipes and piper/inventor, Kyle Campbell, has brought this innovative new chanter design to fruition. Drawing on McCallum Bagpipes’ experience of producing top quality instruments and some radical thinking from Kyle, this chanter will provide any piper with quick tuning and a sweet, bright, high quality sound.
The Campbell Chanter is based on McCallum’s Mark III design that offers a winning combination already recognized throughout the piping community. With comfortable round holes, this chanter presents a bright sound with brilliant projection and stability.
