Options for Wooden Components and Decorative Trim:
We offer three types of wood species for pipes and several options for decorative trim.
Chanters are turned from Yucatan rosewood, katalox or bubinga
Yucatan rosewood is a brownish, russet-colored wood. Chanters made from Yucatan rosewood have a bright, resonant tone with a warm, mellow feel. A softer wood than katalox, Yucatan rosewood has a somewhat open, porous grain and a rich appearance when finished.
Katalox is very dark purplish/burgundy, almost as dark as African ebony when finished. It is a hard, heavy and dense with tight grain structure. Chanters made from katalox have a strong, smooth, concentrated tone similar to cocobolo or African ebony.
Trim for sets is available in imitation ivory (white), imitation boxwood, or imitation ebony (black). Hand-turned boxwood is available upon request.
Brass keys available are C natural, F natural, B flat, and G sharp and can be retrofitted to chanters anytime after the chanter is completed.
