Are Cheap Bagpipes and
Chanters actually Playable? 

Is your practice chanter sounding like a drowning duck? 
It could be your are just not blowing hard enough to get a good tone...

Something else that could be a factor is the quality of your chanter. Unfortunately if you purchase a $20 practice chanter, made in Pakistan, from Amazon, it's not any good! 

Sure, you can buy a high-end practice chanter for $120+
 

Any Bagpipe supply store online with customer service can sell you a Sheppard, Mcallum, RG Hardie, or Walsh practice chanter for $120+. All good brands.

No complaints there...
unless of course you are saving up your pennies for a set of pipes!
