The older Clear Round Highland 1Y, 1YS, 2YS etc are no longer available. The Highland 2YP and Clear Smallpipe reeds are only available while stocks last
Reeds for the Highland Bagpipe are now the Square SW61 and Reeds for the Scottish Smallpipe are now the Square SW40
Both these have an internal moveable plug with a wide range of adjustment and also the use of a different material gives a better response
Please note in order to keep costs at minimum for piping enthusiasts and hobbyists, the chanters are sold as an "assembled hobbyist kit". They are fully assembled and guaranteed, email if having problems or requiring more information. The unit as supplied here is without Powerbank, Leads or Speaker. I cannot post items containing batteries without special precautions.
The unit has NO serviceable parts inside and should NOT be opened. There are NO Batteries, Speakers, Radio, WiFi or Bluetooth components inside. The power consumption of the unit is approx. 50 mA at 5 volt DC Micro-USB connection.
It is recommended that the unit is powered by plugging it into a USB 5 volt PowerBank using a USB A to Micro-USB lead. This makes it portable. A Mains or Car USB 5 volt Power Adaptor (charger) should be used to charge the PowerBank in advance of using it. Do NOT charge the PowerBank when it is supplying power to the chanter
Powering the unit from USB ports in Computers, Phone Chargers and TVs etc. generally works but may cause ground loops and hum etc.
The Audio Output is Lineout levels or Audio Aux out. That means it is suitable for plugging into an amplified Speaker or high impedance Head Phones. Do NOT plug directly into ordinary 4 ohm or 8 ohm Speakers. It can be plugged into Linein on a computer for recording etc. Use a standard 3.5mm TRS Stereo Audio Jack lead and for speaker portability use the small Bluetooth Speakers with Audio Aux input found in the local shops. The chanter does not use bluetooth.
It is the responsibility of the USER / PURCHASER to make sure they use the proper Leads, Power and Speaker equipment and that the equipment complies the relevant country's electrical safety standards. Please email if you require more information.
