Default DIY Plastic PC Reeds - PDF instruction link

In case you haven't gone stir crazy yet, try making a plastic PC reed. Guaranteed crazy every time.

But seriously, if you've got some time and want to try something DIY, a PC reed is a great place to start! Local big box stores usually carry aluminium tubing with 3/16" ID, if you can't get out to a Home Depot, Lowes, etc. a dead pipe chanter reed can be torn down for a donor staple. In a pinch, even a paper tube can be formed then soaked with superglue to form a staple

Making plastic PC reeds

Enjoy!
