RJM Blackwood Solo Chanter :
RJM Chanters are the result of a collaboration between Roddy MacLeod and David Naill & Co. Ltd. Bagpipe Makers combining the knowledge and experience of one of the worlds top pipers along with the skills and craftsmanship of a highly respected bagpipe maker with over 30 years of experience in the bagpipe making trade.
“I wanted to design a solo chanter that would produce the sound that I personally like to play. For me that means a well balanced, refined and resonant tone. It had to be pitched appropriately so that it would be easy to tune with reeds from a range of today’s most prominent manufacturers and also produce a bright sound that projects well. I spent a lot of time trying to ensure that it was straightforward to get a good stable Piobaireachd High G and alternate between the normal High G without adjustment, which is a big consideration for solo players and, of course, it had to give me my trademark High A!” – Roddy MacLeod
