Practice Chanter sounds like a duck!!
by Rick Fitzgerald
Recently I have taken to wanting to play the bagpipe and have purchased a practice chanter to get started.
I received it today and began playing with it but noticed that each time i blow into it it sounds like a duck (I tried three reeds with the same result). Sometimes I can manage a good sound but those are few and far between.
I dont know if this is caused by me, the chanter or the reed. I am willing to get a better reed/chanter if need be but I want to be sure that is the problem before I do so. I have included the exact chanter I purchased so you know what I am working with. If the one I have is no good or if just the reed needs to be replaced, I am more than happy to hear your suggestions. Thank you.
