Default Re: Competition pitch, solo

I think you'll be fine with a pitch typical of a newer chanter. For example, my McC2 tunes around 472 in my practice room in our basement (chilly in winter), but more like 474-476 in summer.

I think if you pitched much lower than 472, you may get a comment. More likely could be that your piping may stand out because of the difference in pitch between you and other players and that could be really good, or really bad.
