Default Re: Practice chanter pitch

My Gibson PC's all play at bang on Bb 3rd Octave. (One Octave lower than Pipe Chanter.)

If your using a Tuning meter, with A Reference at 440, most PC's will be thereabouts at Bb. OR with the Tuning Meter outsmarted to say its an A, A reference at 466 or so.

I use an Audio tuning reference for PC, and tape accordingly, kinda the same as tuning a Pipe Chanter to the Drones. My body beat sync Metronome has an audio tuner, and many Tuners have an audio feature.
