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).
