    NEW April 20th! Become a piper Beta Tester - you'll get a copy of the current prototype, printed at home by me on my Orion Delta 3D printer (this is how the prototype in the current video was produced). Once the design process has been completed, I'll print you a copy of the finalised design, too, so two chanters in all! The price also includes a reed, and a split stock section if your pipes have a split-stock arrangement already. All parts can be sized to fit your pipes - I'll contact you about this if the project is successful. You'll also need to be willing to correspond with me about your experiences with the chanter, hopefully you'll thoroughly road test it. I may well forward more than two versions to the most enthusiastic Beta Testers, and possibly more than one key, it all depends on how much you want to get involved!
