If you want to play tunes in concert G and D, with a compass  between D and 
b, with the simplest possible fingerings (holes rather than keys)  then a G 
chanter is certainly what you need. If you use a D chanter you will  have more 
range for playing notes below this compass, but will lose range at the  top - 
only going up to (real) f sharp typically. You don't want to use  overblowing! 
D chanters sound wonderful, but aren't what you need for  playing along with 
G chanters can sound a bit shrill, and are fiddly to cover the  holes 
properly (think of a sopranino recorder). So if you get the chance to try  
before you 
buy, do so.
