Shepherd Mk 3, African Blackwood Pipe Chanter
Shepherd chanters have been played at the highest levels since Bob Shepherd won the World Pipe Band Championships two straight years with his Dysart and Dundonald Pipe Band in the mid-1970s. No other active chanter has won more World Pipe Band Championships. But it is also played by leading players as a solo chanter, particularly this African Blackwood model. As you might expect, it prefers the Shepherd pipe chanter reed and generally pitches around 478 or above, depending on the reed selected. Band discounts are available. The chanter comes with a reed in your desired strength.
