Default Re: chanter reeds made for a specific pitch range?

Heya Klondyke. This chanter was made for these pipes in the early 20th century. They tune on the hemp line (both) for the bass, and a little higher than the hemp line for the tenors. Playing cane reeds.

The chanter is 5 -6 hz sharper than it would have been when new due to aging.
Noble and manly music invigorates the spirit, strengthens the wavering man, and incites him to great and worthy deeds. Homer.
