    Circa 1990s Sinclair chanter with small imitation ivory sole

    One of the greatest chanters ever made, the Sinclair chanter will be made no more since the closure of the company last year.

    The vintage of this chanter is frankly a stab in the dark. It may be more recent. With a Chesney reed it played at about 471-73 cps, so it probably has a range of 468-476, depending on the reed. It was true up and down the scale. The chanter is in great shape with no carving. A chuck of wood was missing from the crown just above the sole, but Dunbar Bagpipes did a beautiful job of filling this, and you wouldn’t notice it without being told.

    Circa 1970s Sinclair pipe chanter, ivory sole

    The Edinburgh firm of William Sinclair and Son made one of the premier pipe chanters on the market for decades. Unlike other older chanters, they have well stood the test of time and still go well with today’s reeds. This circa 1970s Sinclair chanter is in excellent condition, uncarved. The holes are nicely worn from use and the chanter feels great under the hands. This chanter pitches in the low to mid-470s. The sole is ivory.  Seems to reed well with the Chesney Warnock copper staple.
