Default Re: New set by Pierre Blanchet

Thanks very much for your comments.

The aim to get the sound heard two centuries ago is to make the good reeds they made at that time, so when cane from Spain or south France was not provided enough they used local material like Elderberry stems.
The sound obtained is really fabtastic full of harmonics especially for the bass drone.
Of course a chanter reed with a staple of one inch long is the answer to sound again vintage chanter.
Nowadays nobody dare to play old sets with old chanters using strange reeds but when done, sound obtain is certainly close to MacCrimmon's era.
