Troy McAllister Chanter Reeds

Made by Jamie Troy with the original equipment used by the legendary McAllister family. This reed sounds great in a wide range of chanters. A favorite of band and solo players. A little on the hard side when blowing in, but the little extra effort is well worth it. Available in medium and easy strengths. Shipped humidified and ready to play.


Helpful Tips:
-when you receive your reeds, slightly dampen them &, if necessary, pinch the sound box.  Pinching will ease it & allow easier blowing-in experience.  You may pinch the reed occasionally to maintain the ease of blowing.
-if, after pinching, the reed is still too strong, you may need to slightly scrape the blades of the lay (the top half of the reed).  Do only a little at a time and evenly on each side.  Use a very sharp utility knife and scrape lightly.  A rubber band (3/16" diameter & force 4 oz) placed just above the black hemp will ease the reed too.
-if you find the reed is flat on the 'F', pinch the reed; applying rubberbands may help too.  If you have this problem with an easier reed, you can trim the tips of the blades with a very sharp knife.
