    It's really difficult to know the design pitch intention of past makers, and many I suspect had no design pitch in mind beyond making the chanter X inches long. Glen is the only maker as far as I know who's on record talking about pitch.

    My thesis is that the design pitch of instruments in the inter-war period was A=452, which the British Army continued to use until after the war, and that the pitch increase was well underway even by the sixties, when it was conveniently around B flat.
