Default Re: Chanter tuning help

I like my high a spot on with low a , they are the first two notes to get right after all when you tune your drones you are using high a right ? Then checking low a so if theyre both different your tuning your drones twice .then for me its c and e then the rest leaving high g till last because thats the one thats usually a bit sharp but a bit of reed scratching and were all perfect .

I don't. I tune my drones to each other and then play something and check against low-a

Really? Thatís a bold statement
