Default Re: To carve or not to carve?

[QUOTE=salmunmousavi;1336636]Hello everybody!

I purchased an Apps smallpipe reed to pair with this hybrid bag, and I'm finding that it is requiring a heck of a lot more air than my Abbott reed, so much so that it has become quite difficult to even play them.

You need to use the brass bridle fitted on the reed to close the mouth down. This will adjust the amount of air going through it and make it easier to blow. Don't ever put a secondary bridle on. Feel free to call me if you would like me to talk you through this process.
