What do our customers say & Chanter Mate in Media?
I think I purchased one of the first prototype models of the Chanter Mate devices. I had a collection of chipped and fractured bagpipe chanter reeds in my carrying case – all hopelessly unserviceable and unrepairable. The cost of the Chanter Mate device is, order of magnitude, similar to the cost of a reed. I have had my current reed for about a year now. It is in pristine condition and hasn’t so much as brushed the side of the stock. The Chanter Mate is easy to use and worth its weight in gold. As the man said, “Never another fractured reed!”. A five star innovation. Campbell Davidson, Brisbane
It’s great to have good technique, it’s necessary to tune and balance the pipes… but the starting point is to use a good and undamaged chanter reed. That’s where “Chanter Mate” comes in. I lost count of the reeds that I ruined when fitting the chanter to my pipes, before I started relying on my “Mate”. If like me you tend to be a little clumsy with reeds,do yourself a favour and get a Chanter Mate.
