Default Re: Right or wrong way to break in a chanter reed

Loaded question! Different cuts of reeds require different manipulation methods and even then there are a few different ways to achieve the goal. I think you have to talk with your instructor/pipe major/good piper (who is also a friend) about what techniques they like.

Chris Apps also has a pretty good article about reed manipulation that you can check out on his site. You can also find a direct link to it on the "Elusive High A" thread that is going on.....Chris posted it (first page, last thread).

Don't take life seriously! You'll never get out of it alive!
