The McCallum Regular Polypenco practice chanter has holes with the traditional practice chanter spacing. The holes are countersunk to make them easier to feel. The chanter is easy to reed and has a very nice tone and feel. The McCallum polypenco chanters all have a nice matte finish that is more pleasant than the smooth plastic on many polypenco practice chanters. Pictured is the plain chanter without a sole - one of my favorites of the budget priced practice chanters.
