Husk Chanter Reeds
Made by Shawn Husk
Husk reeds are ridge cut reeds that have been designed to product a bright vibrant sound that works well in nearly all chanters on the market. Characterized by its bright sound and huge volume without being too hard to blow, it is also very stable with various blowing pressures.
-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.
