Quickview AccessoriesMount the Bagpipe tuner on your blowpipe! This handy mount positions the HBT-3 Bagpipe Tuner onto your blowpipe. It frees up your hands for tuning and can be mounted and removed in seconds. The mount is made of up of 2 components- a silicon rubber strap with multiple tensioning positions and a soft plastic coated bracket for the HBT-3 Bagpipe Tuner to slide in. The coated bracket won't damage the wood on your pipes or move about once it's secured. The great feature of the bracket is that it allows the tuner to be in close view, so when the clip mic is used you can easily monitor each note being played. Also, the tuner can be used as a manometer (pressure monitor) with the aim being to keep the needle steady. Any blowing pressure movements are detected and shown by the needle moving, and with the tuner in the bracket and easily viewable makes this accessory a must have.$19.99

Accuracy and Sensitivity:
The HBT-3 Bagpipe Tuner delivers precision digital accuracy and will detect any pitch fluctuations your bagpipe chanter and drones produce, which means if the blowing is not ‘spot on’… the HBT-3 needle will indicate this.
However there’s also a ‘velocity’ (v) button so you can slow down the needle movement if required. The velocity button allows greater tolerance to pitch/ pressure fluctuations.
The HBT-3 calculates movement at 1Hz steps between the ranges of +/- 1-hz for superior detection and sensitivity.
