Practice Chanters

Practice Chanters

Our Walsh Practice chanters are made from Plastic or African Blackwood. The Plastic Chanters come in three sizes : Small ( Child's ) Regular length and Long. The Blackwood Chanter is available in the Regular length as well as the long. Each chanter has a threaded reed seat, countersunk holes and includes a Walsh Practice Chanter reed. John spends time with each chanter to insure it is in tune before it leaves our workshop.


** If you order the African Blackwood Chanter and it is to be shipped outside of Canada we will include an Official Certificate from CITES Canada as Blackwood is now on the Endangered Species List ( CITES )
