Default Re: Electronic NSP

I have the Fagerstrom electronic chanter and it is pretty good for practicing smallpipes. I haven't used it for NSP, and I'm not aware that it can properly take that role. On the other hand, it does smallpipes and big pipes quite well. It's a great deal more convenient than taking any set about the country, and makes plane rides go by a good deal faster. I have gotten tremendous service from the owner on the few occasions I needed any help. I would definitely recommend the product. There is an E-chanter project in the DIY portion of forums, where you would quite cheaply build your own, and that could probably get remapped for NSP fingering. That's well beyond my capabilities.
