McCallum Bagpipe Practice Chanters
Our extensive range of McCallum bagpipe practice chanters are manufactured from Polypenco or wood. These instruments are a quality product producing a true tone for the discerning ear. Each chanter carries the McCallum Bagpipes marking, your guarantee of workmanship to the highest standards.
This year we have introduced a number of new ideas to our pipe chanters. We now have the option of several very different and attractive soles, ranging from the basic shaped standard non sole finish right up to the highly decorative and extremely eye catching engraved silver sole.

WA Music is not an “online only” business working from a private house, as some customers have asked. WA Music is a large Bona Fide retail business with two large shops in Innaloo, and a warehouse in Osborne Park. Unlike an online only business working from a private house, people interested in bagpipes do NOT need an appointment to visit WA Music and view the range of piping products. Bagpipes can also be demonstrated in-store.
Although WA Music has a large range of products, the owner and director of the company (who is Scottish) has a special interest in bagpipes and played as a boy in Scotland. We would very much like to reach out to the bagpipe community in Australia and we will try to match (or better) any prices on bagpipe products. This is in line with our company philosophy of low prices and high level of customer service, which these days is an essential prerequisite in the Darwinian struggle of Australian music retail.
