The most popular pitch for this bagpipes is G.
Now also avaliable to order Schäferpfeifes in G, F, D and C.
Schäferpfeife chanters are all have medium width bore and tuned to be able to give 1 1/2 octaves and have almost complete chromaticity.
After several years of work Alexander has developed chanter which was fully chromatic by cross fingering and two metal keyes, giving a good minor third, minor sixth, major seventh, sharp fourth, and minor second, without altering the standard fingering of the normal pipe scale. Two additional metal keyes can be installed to the chanter this option gives full chromatic range to a player. Also some other keyes can be installed extending the range.
