Got this about two years ago thinking I'd compete with it. It's a nice chanter and plays great.
No holes have ever been modified. No cracks, chips, or any other blemishes.
There is a slight warp down the length away from the holes that I have not found to affect anything; neither fingering or sound at all. I have included a picture to try to show this.It's pretty slight and hard to see on a picture. You an see it if you look down it from the bell end. It has been like that for a year and has not gotten any more pronounced that I can tell.
I have tried to keep it at a consistent humidification level.
