Default Re: Poly or Blackwood Chanter: Can you hear the difference?

"..capable of producing multiple chanters with precisely the same bore and playing characteristics"...

Isn't what they all say?

Imho,..I believe it's either possible...or impossible.

Default Re: Poly or Blackwood Chanter: Can you hear the difference?

I always thought I could hear a difference between poly and blackwood. But lately I've been playing a poly pipe chanter and I think I can't hear any difference. One really nice thing about a poly chanter is that the internal dimensions you had when it left the maker remain identical forever - unlike a blackwood pipe chanter.
