New product from McCallum Bagpipes; Practice chanter and goose combination.
As you can see from the photographs you can play it as a practice chanter or you can seperate the practice chanter and add it to the goose bag and play it as a goose. It is also better value than buying the items separately.
It is available with the McCallum PC1, PC2 & PC4. Please contact your local distributor for info.
