Default Re: Favourite chanter pitch

I'd like to be at a lower pitch, around Bb, or low 470's. I think the instrument loses some of its mood and warmth at higher pitches, and becomes a bit metallic sounding and even grating to non-pipers, who should ultimately be the people we play for. I'm in a band though, so I don't have control over these things. I have to keep a separate chanter and drone reeds to play solo, which is more than I have time to keep going, so I mostly play a very sharp band chanter.
