Re: Need a quiet playing PC reed for Mccallum long pc

Try putting a rubber around the blades. This makes the reed quieter. Move the rubber up and down to adjust it to your needs.

Re: Sinclair pipes tuning low on pins

Are you sure with the screw all the way in? Should It not be the other way, all the way out? In my kinnaird bass drone I can see the screw. Hope it's clear what I mean.
