I'm open to try his reeds, he's here in Ohio so I would get them rather quick. I e-mailed him a message on the 7th and haven't heard back. For those who have them have you tried the senior/beginner and easy strength?
Thanks

Be patient - he's recovering from surgery, so it might be a bit before he's back at reed making again. The easy strength are very comfortable to play with basically no 'blow in' time required. Very consistent from reed to reed, as well.

I spoke with Shawn for several hours last week. He is working to get on the road to recovery. I'm sure he will need some patience from those of us that play his reeds.

Until he can recover and get caught up, I can dig through my reed stash and send you one of his new reeds if you would like?

I appreciate the offer that's kind of you.. I just started on this journey last year, (since retirement) been on the pipes since August and still finding my comfort zone. Playing an Abedour emerald easy reed now and sounds really good.

Hi everyone,

I had to have emergency eye surgery the day after Christmas so it's been a real trying few weeks. The good news is that the surgery was successful and I will eventually have full use of my right eye again, but it's going to take some months before I'm out of the woods.

In the mean time I am still able to make reeds, just need to learn to do it with one eye lol and thankfully I have a local piper to help me with the testing process as I can not currently blow reeds due to the pressure increase in the eye.

Thanks again for your concern.
