Default Re: Polyester thread instead of hemp = game changer!

I just performed a test of my wooden and my plastic Peter Henderson chanters.

Put them in 1 refrigerator for 5, 10 and 15 minutes. These times were long enough to affect a change in temperature on the chanters.

Measured three lengths (full, top of high G, top of low A). Measured width at low A.

Absolutely no change occurred whatsoever on either chanter.

This is not to say that heat or cold does not have an impact. It is to say (1) assertions should be replicated before accepted as fact, and (2) it is far less likely that the chanter changes than does the reed.

If you see different results, post them. Ill leave my chanters in for an hour and see if that makes a difference.
