Bagpipe "Start-up kit" for Adults

Here at Barr 1 Highland Supply we receive a ton of emails and phone calls........... what will I  need to get started playing the bagpipes?

The Answer is: A book and a practice chanter with practice chanter reed.

Book- The Highland Bagpipe Tutor Book One is the best book for starters. Some of your best pipers playing today started with this book.

Practice chanter-  R.G, Hardie Twist Trap (Long) Poly Practice Chanter.  You have a number of different choices however, this is one of our favorite . One of the big advantages is It has the O rings as apposed to the hemp. This allows the beginner to properly install the chanter together the same way overtime and includes a water trap to divert moisture from the reed.

NOTE: This package comes with a "long" style practice chanter and the holes are counter sunk. This gives it a  closer feeling of what the real bagpipe chanter really feels like. Again, love this set up for beginners.

The R.G. Hardie basic Twist Trap (long) Poly Practice Chanter is a budget chanter with a plain finish and countersunk holes.  It comes with a built in water trap and comes complete with a reed.

The Highland Bagpipe Tutor Book One    The Highland Bagpipe Tutor Book 1 by The National Piping Centre (Incorporating the College of Piping) is the most widely used instruction guide for beginning the bagpipes. This book is also known fondly as the "Green Tutor Book". This trusted resource has clear pictures and text that have helped many learn the bagpipes. In addition, you will find supporting video clips for each lesson at: www.thepipingcentre.co.uk/learn/tutorbooks

In 2019, the Green Tutor Book was edited to reflect an exciting, modern look, complete with a new cover. This new version continues the longevity of excellent information, and the book's original integrity has been maintained. This book begins with the basics: reading music, playing notes on the practice chanter, and fundamental fingering.  By Lesson 4, you're starting to play part of a tune. The book includes 14 tunes.
