Default Re: higher quality / more expensive practice chanters

I started out with ABW practice chanter. After playing it for some time, I decided to try out a plastic to have as a spare. The feeling is completely different. The plastic one felt dead, with annoyingly sharp holes. My wooden chanter is more vibrant, and the feeling of wood is fantastic.
I just dropped the idea of having a spare plastic chanter.

All these fancy ornaments does not give a better sound, but it's more fun to play an instrument that is really precious to you, other than one that just does the work.
