Practice Chanters

Practice Chanters

A beginner piper will first learn finger positioning, embellishments and simple tunes on a practice chanter before they progress to bagpipes. Pipers and Pipe Bands will regularly play practice chanters to learn and refine tunes before playing on bagpipes, so it is worth spending time to select your ideal chanter.


Practice chanters come in different sizes, starting with the junior which is suitable for children up to the age of 10 years old. The choice of chanter size also depends on the size of your fingers; therefore, children may progress to a standard or long chanter before 10 years old.


Our standard and long chanters will suit all ages and abilities. The difference between these is that the long chanter holes are spaced to match those of a pipe chanter whereas a standard chanter has a slightly smaller spread. Like bagpipes, the cost of a practice chanter is determined by the materials and accoutrements it is made from. All our chanters have a consistent quality of sound.
