So, I ran across this website and it has a pipe with two chanters. I thought that was awesome. Then I was telling my dad how cool it was and he said, well, you could do that with your smallpipes. I was like, DUH! My smallpipes used to be bellows blown, but are now mouth blown, so I just stick another chanter in the old bellows stock. Here’s a couple tunes in video (quicktime format). I taped the top hand of the 2nd chanter.
Kalabakan – Both hands on one chanter then each hand on its own chanter. Just played the tune straight through leaving each hand where it would be were I only playing one chanter.
Sleep Dearie Sleep – Each hand on its own chanter. Tried to do some harmony.
The volumes of chanters and drones aren’t matched real well, but hey, it works! I had to use a rubber coaster on my leg to keep the top hand chanter from flying off when playing high G/A.
The pipes were made by Ray Hughes.
