I would steer clear of anything that isnít a properly made mode.

Go with McCallum, Dunbar (itís what I started on), Pipers choice (fairly comparable to McCallum)...

The sweeter sound will reward students for doing it right, instead of still sounding like trash.

I had one rosewood chanter that looked quite nice but obviously not worth playing.

The bore is rough, that causes the sound to match...


This past winter I finally got my dream chanter.

McCallum ABW with poly top and full engraved nickel everything. The sound drives me to play more.

I may still have that ol rosewood beating stick somewhere but only because I donít have a fireplace to give it a proper send off.

Depending where you are in the world there are better options than Ali Baba bagpipe supply lol
