Q. I ordered a chanter a few days ago. When will it arrive?
A: All chanters are made to order. Our current wait time is around two weeks.
Q: I need a chanter ASAP for a special occasion and I can’t wait the lead time quoted. Can you help?
A: We can! We can push a chanter through if you need it for a certain date provided the times are viable. Note: Please only use this service in the case of an emergency as this disrupts production and causes other orders to be delayed.
**Please contact us before ordering to ensure your request is physically possible**
Q: What are the best reeds to use?
A: We use Frazer Warnock Reeds (long red/green tongues). We have found them to be the best and most consistent of the reeds we have tested. **We have heard Abbot reeds are also a good choice.
Q: What are your chanters made from?
A: Wood! That’s all we can say. If we told you any more we’d have to kill you!
Q: Where are you based?
A: Our workshop is in the centre of Glasgow.
Q: What’s your perfect cup of tea?
A: I like to use a standard tea bag – usually Scottish Pride – but any generic teabag will do.
1. Add the hot water and leave to infuse for 2½ minutes (DO NOT mush the tea bag under any circumstance as this causes it to leave a bitter taste).
2. Now, here’s the kicker! You throw in an Earl Grey tea bag and let it mellow for 1 minute along with the generic tea bag.
3. When time has elapsed removed both tea bags and discard. (Note: Be careful not to crush the bags as this leaves a bitter taste.)
4. Then add milk to taste or until the colour matches that of “Plantation Beige”.
Viola! The perfect cup of tea!
