Q: Hello. Very seriously considering buying a 440 chanter. How do I get my drones down that low? Will the Bflat drone reeds get me close or do I need something else? I'd prefer not to have extenders if possible. Thnks
A: In order to get your drones down to A440 you would need to use either drone reed extenders or if you have McCallum Pipes, drone extenders. These are very nice and are added to the tops of your drones...not drone reeds to lower your pitch.
