Great band chanter, February 7th, 2013 03:24 pm By: John Dennis(Piper ) Read my other reviews
Our band has been using McCallum pipe chanters for a decade now. The volume we get from players of varying ability is excellent. Well made, very consistent scale, and economical price make it a great choice for bands. Easy to reed, it makes a Pipe Sergeant's life, like mine, a lot easier come time for tuning. Some people with smallish hands find them hard to get used to, but other than that they are foolproof. Great chanter!, November 26th, 2010 01:12 pm By: Jack Williamson(Piper 3) Read my other reviews
This is one of the best chanters that I have ever played. It tunes well with almost all makes of reeds and sounds bright and loud with even the easiest reed you can buy. With this chanter, you don't need 2 by 4s tied together with barbed wire to get a loud, bright, commanding sound. This is the best chanter for any band, even at the top level , October 2nd, 2009 04:27 pm By: Graeme McCombe
Have used the poly McCallum chanter in the past, and they are very easy to work with. Great for young bands. Chanter, November 12th, 2008 06:36 pm By: Ryan Ohare
This is a great chanter. Balanced, bright, loud... Very easy to reed. Ross reeds work very well in this chanter. Good Band Chanter, September 22nd, 2008 06:20 pm By: Patrick McLaurin(Piper ) Read my other reviews
This chanter tunes very well with many different reeds. It has a lot of volume which probably makes it a good band chanter. The oval holes are harder to cover and so it takes some getting used to. Better than 1990\'s Shepherd and 1990\'s Dunbar band chanters I have used in the past. About the same as some Maple Sinclair band chanters I used to play, probably a bit louder though. Highly recommended as a band chanter.
