McCallum C4 — MCC2, African Blackwood Pipe Chanter

This is the blackwood version of the “MC-Squared,” the McCallum solo pipe chanter developed by leading soloist Willie McCallum with pipemaker Stuart McCallum a few years ago. It has become extremely popular, is played by top soloists worldwide and has won most of the top piping prizes in the world. It prefers MacPhee, Chesney Warnock (copper staple), Troy or Shepherd reeds and pitches anywhere from 476 to 482 depending on the reed selected.  The chanter comes with a threaded reedseat and a reed in your desired strength.
