Thread Name: Pipe Chanter and whistle ?
Subject: RE: Pipe Chanter and whistle ?
My husband got an adapter for his father's practice chanter. It reduces the size of the bore. Then you attach it to the bag of the bagpipes, stop up the drones and you end up with a quiet version of the pipes suitable for indoor use and playing along with friends. the difficulty with using a practice chanter alone is that you run out of breath, but when it is attached to the bag you can keep going like normal and duracell.
