Default Re: Smallpipe reed question

You could always shorten any of the plastic widebody pc reeds and drive the pitch up a bit. It takes a pair of scissors and the willingness to risk $15. Often a little judicious sanding of the top third will solve any playability issues that shortening the reed by a 32" at a time.
The older I get, the more certain I am, that everything should be made from blackwood, beeswax, reeds, shellac and bits of string...
