Tunetape is an aggressive pressure sensitive tape for fine tuning notes on the pipe chanter. Purpose made for Bagpipes, it offers superior resistance to heat, moisture, humidity and cold. Each roll is 5 metres * 11mm, very thin so you hardly feel it on the chanter, clear so it's unnoticed by others and can be reapplied many times. Tunetape leaves minimal residue and won't damage your pipe chanter or clog the holes. Tunetape is no ordinary tape, it is unique for the use on Pipe Chanters. It outlasts any other chanter tape available.
Using Tunetape for fine tuning and making adjustments is easy. The tape is strong, flexible and movements to the smallest millimetre are possible. Also, by adding pressure when reapplying increases Tunetapes aggressive hold on the chanter. Once in place, Tunetape's resistance to movement reduces those unwanted slips during performances and it's actual 'feel' on the pipe chanter won't interfere with finger movements. You won't even know it's there and birls will flow easily! It's the ideal bagpipe accessory to make the tuning process easier.
Gone are the days of electrical black tape slipping or feeling chunky gaffer tape between your fingers!
