Introducing Twist Trap Practice Pipes, a set of mouth-blown smallpipes incorporating a long practice chanter and two drones. They produce a softer more mellow tone in comparison to the Highland Bagpipes and pitch in the key of A (440Hz), a general tuning standard for many musical instruments. They are fun to play on their own or in a group setting along with other instruments.
A particularly innovative design aspect to the Twist-Trap Practice Pipes chanter top is the blow piece for moisture control. Moisture control is important for kids as they produce a lot more saliva than an adult when playing. This new moisture control design feature will become the standard top on the entire range of R. G. Hardie & Co plastic practice chanters.
“I have been playing a set and they are great fun, much better than practicing on a practice chanter,” said Alastair Dunn, Managing Director of R. G. Hardie & Co. “They will help beginners with the transition from chanter to pipes and understanding the importance of maintaining constant pressure when blowing.”

Suitable for Pipers of all abilities
Key of A
Twist Trap Moisture Control
Long Practice Chanter

It incorporates storage for your accessories with one outside pocket. You have the option of carrying this case via two heavy duty nylon handles or as a back pack with two adjustable straps. Great value for a case to transport your pipes from practices to competitions.
The Bannatyne dri-flo moisture control system is an excellent system for managing moisture in the bagpipe.
It also acts as a filter for easy strike ins and cut offs. Once gels turn a dark color simply place in oven for approximately 45 minutes at 100C. The Bannatyne system allows for flexible moisture control and improves stability and steadiness of the bagpipe.
