Default Re: higher quality / more expensive practice chanters

I had a Lawrie PC in ABW that I bought as a new student in '68 (I think I paid less than ten dollars for it). It had a great mellow tone. Roddy MacLeod has one just like it, in fact. Regretfully, mine disappeared during St. Patrick's week a few years back. I had it in my pipe case (which I had always done) and somewhere along all of the gigs I either took it out and forgot it or someone lifted it (most likely the former). I backtracked everywhere I had been to no avail, and I miss it terribly. It was an old friend. I've purchased a couple of polys since and they're OK but don't have the sentimental value.
