Was there ever a Warmac wooden chanter? I bought one once (so described)to replace my Hardie chanters. Maybe it was plastic? Good chanter though. Cheers, Garry.

The original Polypenco chanter (the mottled grey one)was first made in 1973.
To my recollection Shotts first played them in 1974. There were "issues" with reeding them as believe it or not they were considerably sharper than the Sinclairs the band then played. The MacAlister reed was "tweaked" for Sinclair chanters and some modifications were made.......
I still have one of the originals, I'll post a photo when I get home.

The tune "Farewell to Camraw" is commemorative of ????Pipe Band who got rid of their Warmac chanters (Camraw is 'Warmac' spelled backwards) and switched to a newer chanter.
