Default Practice chanter for Bruce Gandy pipe chanter

I have a Bruce Gandy pipe chanter which I really like, very comfortable to play. Before this I used a Naill pipe chanter.



I have a Naill long practice chanter, the holes of which are similar to the pipe chanter.


But now with the new Gandy chanter I'd like to find a practice chanter with similar hole spacing to the Gandy. If anyone knows of one please let me know.

Thanks.

You could probably ask McCallum to make one, since they’re the makers of the Gandy chanters.

Thanks, that is a good idea.


I found a pretty close match, the Naill blackwood regular length chanter.



But it'd be great to get one made. The Gandy chanter is awesome by the way. Very comfortable.

I would suggest possibly looking at Murray Huggins. The Kyo pipe chanter has very close spacing and believe his PCs mimick that. I hope that is what you are looking for.
