I think your chanter is not properlly "galician closed". For say "I have a Galician closed fingering chanter" you need to have the correct diameter in hole for get the F note with the closed position:

xxx oxx o
x


I think you want to say you can play "half-closed fingering" well, isn´t it?

Or maybe you have two varela chanters in open and closed fingering :P

Correct "International"-answer would be:
"I have two Varela-Chanters, with wich I can play open and half-open fingering with all semitones just fine!"
Even with plastic-reeds, as well with male- and female reeds (pressure and volume are the difference). The plastic-reed seems to have all disadvantages of male and female reeds, though: It's not very loud, but it doesn't go well into second octave, either! But I trust in Anton very much, just give him some more years...
