Default Re: Chanter throat

Have you been reading some rather old fashioned literature?

If so, clearing the throat was something of a fashion at one time, I suspect more due to rising pitch than due to some sort of necessary procedure. However, it was claimed that the throats of chanters narrowed over time and needed reaming out to their original size.

If you're thinking of this, it's a job for a pipemaker, I'd say.
