FWIW..( you might already know this) .....Naill 'recommends' folded staple reeds such as MacPhee,Warnock, Colin Maclellan, Troy others. I've found Macphee remains robust and true on the high hand especially F and G, G Nat. ..whereas Shepherd standard reeds ( my go to reed for other chanters)....seem to not....in my early 2000's stick; wondering if same for early/original vintage.

Agreed...though I tend to look at older Naill ABW chanters as an unfinished product when purchased new in those days...carving is necessary on D, C, and B and taping on every hole to get it just right..they really sing with superb harmonics...the old MacAllisters were my reed of choice...the right Shepherd does the trick now..

Shepherd standard or ridge cut? What year is the chanter?

Shepherd standard...not a fan of ridge cuts...too chirpy and shrill IMO...the chanter is circa late 80's.
