The Fagerstrom Uilleann TechnoPipe version is an ideal complement to your regular practice chanter. It does not have regulators, and it does not do glissandos. The finger spacing is the same as that of the Highland bagpipes Technopipe. It does not have keys on the chanter, but a fully chromatic scale can be achieved by cross-fingering. 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. The chanter is currently only available in clear plastic. It comes complete with a set of headphones. This chanter uses earphones to hear you playing. This way you are the only person who hears you practice. It is perfect for practicing on bus's trains, in bed or at church! The precision of the electronics make this chanter unforgiving at detecting crossing noises. The unit is specially programmed to shut down after a period of inactivity to conserve battery power. Recordable playback capabilities, and Midi Output. This unit uses 1 AAA battery (approx. 10 hours of battery life). The TechnoPipes is perfect for traveling as it will easily fit in your luggage without taking up much room. This chanter is a must for the serious piper. A soft case is available for this chanter.
