Default Re: Practice chanter pitch

I dug out six of my PCs and checked their low A
against a real frequency counter and got these results:

Alexander Long... 203 Hz
David Glenn........ 235
R G Lawrie.......... 220
R G Lawrie.......... 222
McThistle Maple....223
McThistle Cherry..218 Hz

These pitches are a little lower than the normal
tenors and could blend with the full pipes

High A would be twice the above frequencies

Tuning meters that are reporting pitches in the 400s
are probably measuring the High A or giving the wrong octave.
Variables keep me up at night ;Q
