>We are being told that lower pitched chanters are not

John, lower pitched chanters are NOT flat. And I know this is going to raise your dander!! ;-)

Check the difference in the words "flat", and "flatter".

Lower pitched chanters are "FLATTER" than modern pitched chanters.

"FLAT" is a relative term. One note can be "flat" in relation to another, and one chanter can be flat in relation to another. But a chanter on it's own, can't be flat. It can be flatter than another chanter, but not just "flat".

So you see, it's a matter of semantics. It's in how the language is used. You're right in what you're trying to say, that old chanters are flatter than todays. They're not flat on thier own though :)

>Sorry, I ain't buying it!

Can I interest you in some swamp land in north central B.C? If you're in the buying mood!!!!!!

we are playing around 477 - 480, I think that at that pitch you are able to get clarity from the chanters that you may not get at a lower pitch. The most important thing however, is achieving a balanced chanter. There is no point in aiming for 480 or what ever you think the magic pitch is if you can't have a matched low a and high a. What about the effects of humidity, temperature . . . these too can affect the balanced frequency of the chanter.
