It is approximately 19 inches long when fully assembled, and a practice chanter reed is included. The finger hole spacing is similar to a full drone pipe, with the exception of the lower two holes, which are spaced a little closer. It is tuned to the key of B flat.
Played by itself, this is the first step to learning the bagpipes.
This set includes a reed, book and a CD with teaching methods developed by Pipe Major R.T. Shepard. The book includes photographs of finger positions, exercises, melodies & more. The audio CD tutorial can be used alone or to accompany the book.
