Competing first time this year with old sinclair chanter around 466. If the piobaireachd judge doesn't like the pitch, he/she can lump it. I had to use extenders for kinnairds to be stable, but the sound just feels good on my bones. And we all need good feeling bones, eh? The original late 30's chanter plays around the low 450's and I had to use long ezees with the extenders. That was waaaaay low.
