  • Your Setups? - Practice Chanter

    Just wondering what everybody plays on...

    I use an ABW long Naill with a Warnock reed at the moment. I also have a long poly Dunfion for beach use, and a regular ABW Kintail.

    Thanks for your posts!

            Soutar ABW with Walsh reed.
            Dunbar poly also with Walsh reed.
            I also have a cheap "Bagpipes Galore" plastic pc that has countersunk holes, surprisingly decent tone, and a good octave using Walsh reeds.
            Wonders never cease!

                    1) Naill Poly, (has turned into my 10 month old son's toy - starting him early)

                    2) Henderson, Ivory mounted, my guess circa 1900-1930?(made of a wood that is quite red)

                    3) Sinclair ABW, ivory mounted

                    I've forgotten what reeds I'm using???

                            Home • TruTone Poly Long w/"God Knows" old yellow blade reed.
                            (This is the one my PM uses, so it's the "official" band PC.)

                            Work • Beck 'Cowal' ABW w/whatever reed it shipped with.

                            Car • R.G. Hardie Regular ABW w/"God Knows" old red blade reed.

                            Auxiliary • Dunbar Poly Millennium Long w/what I think might be a Watson Deluxe reed. (Currently set up a bit too loud, I need to tweak it.) I'll probably sneak this one into my wife's car for "emergencies."

                              Wow - I'm not the only person to keep a PC in my car!

                              I have my ABW Long Nail with Walsh Reed for home and most practices - which I generally keep in my pipe case.

                              I have a long "ABW" Pakistani made one, with the reed it came with, which 'moves' around the house - which honestly is the nicest sounding PC I have.

                              A Standard size Australian Made (I forget the maker, and their name isn't on the chanter) ABW with Walsh Reed in my car.

                              A Standard size Pakistani 'Cocus wood' (I think), that I lend to students to basically use until they buy their own.

                              And, finally a Ross Electronic Bagpipe, that also 'moves' around the house and in and out of my pipe box.
