Default Polypipe makers mark

Hello,
I juts picked up a set of poly pipes with a tarmac chanter but the style of drones looks more Henderson to me, so I thought Dunbar, but I guess War Mac made poly pipes also. Anyone have any idea of what distinguishes the two makers? Ie drone dimensions,, name stamp, etc.
Thanks

Can't help with the ID, but I find the idea of a tarmac chanter intriguing
Maybe designed for street bands?

Dunbar’s usually have the name stamped in the cord grove on the drone tops, not sure about the other maker?

Or runways, Bob, OOPS! I have checked out the dunbar web site and they appear to be an earlier set without the stamp in the cord channels. Very well made with nice polished bores. Missing a few mounts but still a nice looking set of pipes. still waiting to hear from Rick at Dunbar about replacing the missing or damaged mounts,
Happy Easter,
Barry
