Roddy MacLeod MBE Pipe Chanters
RJM Chanters are the result of collaboration between Roddy MacLeod and David Naill & Co. Ltd. Bagpipe Makers combining the knowledge and experience of one of the worlds top pipers along with the skills and craftsmanship of a highly respected bagpipe maker with over 30 years of experience in the bagpipe making trade.
Roddy wanted to design a solo chanter that would produce the sound that he personally likes to play. For him that means a well-balanced, refined and resonant tone and pitched appropriately so that it would be easy to tune with reeds from a range of today’s most prominent manufacturers and also produce a bright sound that projects well. He spent a lot of time trying to ensure that it was straightforward to get a good stable Piobaireachd High G and alternate between the normal High G without adjustment, which is a big consideration for solo players and, of course, it had to give his trademark High A!”
