RJM Solo Chanter Modification

Since launching my RJM Solo and Band chanters a couple of years ago there has been a fantastic response with much positive comment. However, when you receive constructive comments for possible improvements it is important to listen. One such comment I have had was about the spacing between the Low A and B hole on the solo chanter with some people finding it a bit of a stretch.

I have taken that on board and now made some small modifications to the chanter which have eradicated the spacing issue making the chanter very comfortable to play, even for those with smaller hands. I am delighted with the result!
So far, I have received 100% approval from those who have tried regarding the comfort of the chanter now.

I have also recently launched a B flat chanter which will shortly be available from this website
