Peter Henderson Blackwood Pipe Chanter

£250.00£695.00 Inc vat


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.
