The Peter Henderson blackwood pipe chanter was designed by Alastair Dunn, Double Gold Medalist.
This chanter has been proven to deliver a winning sound for soloists. The holes are carefully sanded to give the feel of a vintage chanter before under going a rigorous polishing process.
The chanter produces a rich resonant tone that will provide superb harmonics with any set of drones.
