The MAC-1 Pipe Chanter
Click on image to enlarge.
Designed to pitch around 480Hz*. The band style has a bigger bore than the Solo version. This, along with oval holes from Low A to E gives greater projection and power, also providing the ability for fine tuning without losing any volume.
The solo Mac-1 chanter has traditional round finger holes, stable top hand and excellent Piobreached high G.
These chanters will produce and strong clear tone, with crisp gracenotes and an incredibly stable top hand. The rich harmonics produce a powerful sound with even volume throughout the scale.
All Mac-1 chanters have a threaded reed seat, and are available in African Blackwood or Delrin.
