Default Re: Favourite chanter pitch

For solo playing, I'm not stuck on a number. Wherever the pipes choose to settle is fine with me.

When I was playing with a band, the PM would either use his chanter as the target pitch or get an average of the more senior pipers (more reliable blowing, etc.) and went with that. Typically in the 476-478 range most of the time. (We're in the Ohio River Valley, those pitches were for May and September. The pitch could go significantly higher in July and August - much hotter and more humid.)
