JT2 Chanter Reeds


A new ridged-cut bagpipe chanter reed by Jamie Troy at JWT Reedmakers (manufacturers of McAllister chanter reeds).

Hand crafted and made with uncompromising attention to detail, this ridged-cut design provides a warm, brilliant tone with powerful volume, clarity, stability and plenty of pitch suitable for any model of pipe chanter. With this design, pipers will enjoy great vibrancy with less resistance, while offering the same rich character as the original design.

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.
