Default Anyone familiar with Mouthblown Maclellan studio pipes

I have a set of mouth blown Maclellan studio pipes in A and can't find a good reed for it I've tried gibson practice reed and the one it came with the abbott practice reed. I also have the apps practice chanter cane reed. I'm wondering if I can use a smallpipe cane reed like the ones used in fred morrison small pipes that are mouthblown ? If anyone has any advice for these pipes on a decent sounding reed I would greatly appreciate it

A normal cane smallpipe reed will fail due to the moisture in short order. Apps makes a wet cane smallpipe reed (as opposed to a practice chanter reed). I have not tried it but there are reviews on this forum. This question has been asked several times so I would look up those old threads.

I might be confused about what Apps offers:

What does Roddy MacLellan recommend? I've heard several sets of these; they're about as good as it gets for mouth-blown smallpipes.

I also have a set of MacLellan Scottish Smallpipes.
I've used a cane Chris Apps reed that I asked Roddy to include as well as a practice chanter reed .... Both worked nicely though the cane reed was more difficult to tune.
For fun I put in my Walsh PC reed and it worked as well as the plastic one Roddy included.
