Re: Anyone know of a maker of cow horn mounts in the UK?

Re: Tone of new MacRae's

I like the look of the SL1's as well - except when I get to THAT ring cap. Seems they should match the ferrules.....or the mounts. Pick one and make them match! It messes with my need for total...

Re: Ridge or straight cut, which to you prefer?

Interesting comments. I also prefer a straight cut.




Yet isn't it funny though that one of the biggest selling reeds winning competitions is a ridge-cut?
