Default Re: Does a new chanter reed need to "break in"?

to answer your question in a word yes!

search the forum on things to do to break it in. but some things you might wanna try before you get into carving the reed to much and stuff like that is

take the drones out of the stocks put in your rubber stoppers and just play the chanter reed for a while. Do this a few minutes a day on the new reed till it starts breaking in. I usually have 2 reeds going at a time a new one and one that is broke in just so i have a spare.
