    Twist Trap Practice Pipes, by R.G. Hardie Bagpipes, is 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. 

    They were developed to help beginners with the transition from chanter to pipes and understanding the importance of maintaining constant pressure when blowing.

    Features of the Twist-Trap Practice Pipes include:

    • Suitable for Pipers of all abilities
    • Key of A 
    • Twist Trap Moisture Control
    • Long Practice Chanter
    • Bass and Tenor Drone
    • Integral Valve
    • Synthetic Pipe Bag
    • Corduroy Bag Cover
    • Deluxe Carry Case

    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.
