The True Chanter Scale of the Highland Bagpipe

Salsburgh-by-Holytown,

29 June, 1907

Sir,–In the scale I gave in last week’s issue (sic) the low A is given with 445 vibrations. This should be 455 vibrations. As the ratios are given, the error is apparent at once to anyone who applies them, but it is better, I think, to point it out, so I shall be obliged if you insert this correction.–I am, etc.,

Charles Bannatyne, M.B.
