I decided to order one, but it will take a while, it's bespoke, with the big old-school imitation ivory sole.
I did. I really like the new Ceol chanter a lot. Very warm and harmonic chanter, quite high pitched but easy to reed and I think a very good choice for mid to upper level bands. Good stuff McCallum.

Thanks for that! I look forward to getting mine.

I generally play McCallum chanters because the bands I've played with use them and a local reedmaker (Steve Megarity) makes reeds dialed in to suit them, needing little tape. (And sometimes no tape.)

So I can add the Ceol to the Mk2, Mk3, and B-flat McCallums I already play.
