Introducing the Uilleann Technopipes
The chanter can play either an Uilleann or a fully chromatic Great Highland bagpipes fingering scale. You can very easily change between them. They all
use the same Uilleann sound samples.
By touching the octave switch with the upper hand little finger, the notes of the second octave are played. The bottom sensor acts as a low D valve to
enable staccato playing. (See images) .
The contacts on the chanter are electrical and not mechanical, meaning that they do not have to be pressed down to achieve contact. The grip does not
have to be any firmer than that on the pipe chanter. The contacts are about 3mm in diameter, and with their highest point slightly above the surface of
the pipe in order to get a better feel for their position. Worth mentioning is that there is no electrical "ground contact" on which a finger or any
other part of the body has to rest on, or be connected to, whilst playing.
It does not have regulators, and it does not do glissandos. The finger spacing is the same as that of the Great Highland bagpipes Technopipe. It does
not have keys on the chanter, but a fully chromatic scale can be achieved by cross-fingering.
