Technopipes Upper Support

!

This is a support for the top part of the chanter for anyone who needs the added stability.

You hold it against your chest while playing, and you can use it with straight or angled earphone/MIDI connector. It snaps on nicely to the top bit of the chanter, and there's plenty of room around the top thumb contact.
