Practice Chanters

Bagpipe practice chanters are the perfect way to work on your bagpipe skills. The chanter or ‘melody pipe’ on Scottish and Irish bagpipes enables you to play melodies without a drone. A full set of bagpipes can be expensive, so a practice chanter is a great way to get into the world of Great Highland Bagpipes and Great Irish Warpipes.

Practice chanters are great for beginners who are learning to play the bagpipes, as they allow you to practice finger techniques and musical phrasing without the need for a full bagpipe setup. They can be used to play a wide range of styles, including traditional Scottish and Irish music, as well as more modern compositions.
