Reasons for use in place of bagpipes
The practice chanter is, as the name implies, often used to practice playing the bagpipes. It has several advantages over the full bagpipe that led to this role. First, the practice chanter is significantly quieter and thus better suited for the indoors. Second, the practice chanter requires less blowing than the bagpipes, making it physically easier to play. Finally, the practice chanter is easier to tune and maintain than the full bagpipe.
