Greetings to All,


Apparently... we shall never run short... on new kit & gear. :)

As I have never heard of this one.. or much less... seen...
heard... or played one... I am... pretty much... in the dark... :)

But I did go to their web site... and it would seem to be... well
made... and to exacting standards... :)

Aluminium?... Hmm... Never heard or seen one... and I would
guess that... that's... okay... but out in the sun on a hot day...
perhaps gloves... might be in order. :)

It is approximately... $300 Canadian... and $225 USD... Hmmm...

Now I don't intend this to be a negative review... and it's most
probably a damned fine practice chanter... and plays wonderfully
well... :)

Those that are drawn to it... may well obtain one... and I wish
them the joy of it... :)

And... please... do let us know... how it all goes...

Regards to All,

Pip01

There is a page about the company here:


https://www.bcpipers.org/2020/05/gan...facturing-ltd/


I understand the enthusiasm for establishing a strong brand, but I think when you start up you have to do the legwork to establish that brand and who you are first of all.

Yes considering I just got a vintage Lawrie PC on Ebay for $30 I don't think I'm going to spend $300 on that PC or any other PC.
