Introducing the Pitch Guard.
This ingenious, patent pending device will totally prevent a bagpiper over blowing a chanter reed. When adjusted correctly, no amount of blowing will
cause the pitch of the chanter to rise. Especially on the top hand notes.
Additionally, the Pitch Guard will act as a pipe chanter cut off valve. No need to take the chanter out and place a cork in the stock to play the
drones on their own. Just turn the lever until the valve is completely closed and the chanter wont make a sound.
The Pitch Guard regulates the air pressure to the chanter reed and can be retro-fitted to any chanter stock. Fully adjustable from 20-45 inches of
water. Allows for great attacks for pipe bands. Imagine that introduction E being in tune every time. Amazing! Truly Amazing!
The Pitch Guard requires a bit more air. When fitted your reed will gauge about 2 inches H20 stronger. The beauty of the Pitch Guard is that you can
play a much easier reed knowing you cant overblow it no matter what you do. The amazing Pitch Guard allows you to relax into your tunes and gives you
space to concentrate on timing, fingering and music. Yes indeed the Pitch Guard, created by Chris Apps, is the most useful invention for the bagpipes
we have seen in decades.
