current - Ringwood Pipe Band

Go to content



We play mostly traditional scottish music on pipes tuned to scottish pipe band playing convention ie notionally concert B flat (Bb) but actually about half a semitone above that (for reasons best known to itself the piping world has suffered "pitch creep" since 1970). In frequency terms our low A is now in the region of 478 Hz as opposed to 466 Hz. This means that playing with wind or brass ensembles is difficult unless we convert to a concert pitch Bb chanter and extend the drones to accomodate a flatter than usual sound. We can do this for up to 6 pipers at some notice.
