Default Re: Surefire Synthetic chanter reed

I posted about mine not long ago: I like it for playing on my own, but it's a chore to get set-up, (initial tuning, I mean). Once it's there, it stays, but for me personally: I wouldn't want them for my band because it would take sooooo long to get the initial tuning fine and then the inevitable dropped chanter, crushed reed, lost reed, etc that'd be happening at every practice, etc would take far longer to fix.

I really like it for personal play, I think it's a good innovation and I'm glad they exist. I recommend trying one, for sure. But I wouldn't want them for a band-reed for this reason, maybe that's part of the reason they haven't pushed cane reeds off the scene...
