RG Hardie Omega Poly Chanter
Designed in 2019 by Alastair Dunn, Double Gold Medalist and 10-time World Champion with Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band.
This chanter features larger oval finger holes in comparison to the R.G. Hardie Infinity Pipe chanter. This chanter is an updated version of the MKII Hardie pipe chanter where the internal specification and hole positions have been optimized to deliver a robust, bright sound that will deliver a first class sound for pipe bands of all grades. It features oval finger holes and sound holes for maximum projection. Larger holes provide more projection and a brighter sound however the size of the holes are not always comfortable for every piper. The Infinity and Omega chanters allow pipe corps to integrate and play at the same pitch.
The Omega chanter has been extensively tested in a synthetic and leather pipe bag set-up with a range of reeds and produces a rich resonant tone that will provide superb harmonics with any set of drones. It provides optimum sound when pitched in the range 480hz to 484hz.
The R.G. Hardie Plastic Infinity pipe chanter comes complete with a reed protector and protective tube.
