About the chanter :

Developed by Donald WG Lindsay in Scotland between 2006-2018 as a consciously “open source” design, the Lindsay System Chanter is the raison d’etre of Lindstruments.

In January 2019 the uniqueness and potential significance of the new design for piping was acknowledged when three of the most significant “Lindsay System” prototypes were added to the museum collection of The National Piping Centre in Glasgow, Scotland.

About the Lindsay System Chanter :

The Lindsay System Chanter is an "A" Scottish Smallpipes chanter, with range extended both downwards to low "D", and upwards to high "D", while preserving the traditional fingering system within the range low G to high A. The chanter uses no keywork of any kind, and represents a very playable and useful development in piping.

For more information about the chanter and its capabilities, including video and audio, please click here or select "Chanter Information" from the menu.

Lindstruments has become well known within the Scottish piping and traditional music community, and beyond, for our use of new and innovative materials and manufacturing processes. We'd encourage anyone interested, to read more about this aspect of our work here.

A weekly live workshop now takes place via facebook, covering technique and repertoire for this chanter, and including the opportunity for a live Q & A ; if you'd like to take part, send a join request to the facebook group "Lindsay System Chanter" to view and participate in these workshops.
