G1 Pipe Chanter Reeds
G1 reeds are made solely by John Elliott, using a combination of traditional and innovative techniques producing a precision reed. Each tube of cane is personally hand selected by John and only the best will be deemed acceptable for G1's high standards.
These reeds work well in the both plastic and blackwood chanters made by Hardies. The reeds are best suited in our opinion for the pipe band environment for Pipe majors looking for a good projection from their chanters.

Shepherd Pipe Reeds
R.T. Shepherd & Sons production methods and strict quality control at each stage of manufacture (10 stages in total) ensure that the length of the Shepherd reed remains constant in relation to its other variables.
The end result - a unique reed produced and finished by a combination of dedicated craftsmen and advanced machinery techniques and providing greater efficiency, easy adjustment for weaker blowers and easy adjustment to raise pitch.
This consistency makes it easier to manipulate the reed for the required strength and still maintained its desired consistency of pitch and vibrancy.
The characteristic of the pipe reed as well as being dependant on the rigidity of the cane being used also depends on the control of the following ratios in the construction and design
• Staple production consistency
All Shepherd reeds are designed to deliver a pitch combination of 472Hz - 475Hz and above depending on climatic conditions
