Hi Kenny

I lost my money on that one then! Can I try and mask my embarrassment by saying it sounded great. I should have actually watched the whole video clip properly rather than making an assumption. Apologies for any offence caused by my massive 'jump to an erroneous conclusion'.

Cheers

Roddy

I've always wondered why MacCallum doesn't make their own brand of reeds for their chapters the way that Shepherd does..very quare.

Itís an interesting question for sure.

Perhaps itís just too much work with the reed market as ample as it is, plus theyíve probably partnered with someone along the way

MG reeds are based in MacCallum's factory, so they are effectively the in-house reedmakers...
