Chanter Blackwood Asturian Bagpipe 360x38x38 mm
Overview Chanter Blackwood Asturian Bagpipe 360x38x38 mm:
In Maderas Barber we have available all the necessary sizes to build your Asturian bagpipe. The Chanter is one of the fundamental pieces of the bagpipe, as it is where the holes that allow the piper to produce the melodies are located.
Blackwood is an extremely dense African wood, extremely dark in color with purplish-brown tones. With a fine, straight grain and often unnoticeable pores, it is very easy to obtain an extremely shiny piece without much effort. It has all the ideal mechanical qualities for wind instrument parts: hardness, resistance to humidity, ability to allow holes to be drilled to accommodate the keys, ease of turning... not to mention its spectacular and elegant appearance once it is finished. No wonder it is considered the queen of woods as far as instruments of the woodwind family are concerned.
