The Clanrye synthetic Pipe Chanter reed is stable, consistent and not affected by moisture. Unlike cane reeds, the tone does not depreciate with playing. It is available in three strengths: easy, medium and strong. They do not need to be blown! The strength at the outset is the strength for life. Some of the reeds features are: no blowing in, excellent stability, moisture and temperature resistance, high performance, extended lifetime and adjustable balance.
