ReedFix chanter tool (Bandspec) (In Stock)


Product Description

The BandSpec ReedFix is a tool used on a chanter reed when the reed is either too easy or begins to chirp on gracenotes. This device will help revive old chanter reeds and make them last for much longer than they normally would. 

Instructions for Use:

A bagpipe chanter reed has a thin brass or copper tube running through the middle. The end of the tube is compressed. Simply "poke" the bagpipe chanter reed with the ReedFix. 

You can do this by gently pushing the ReedFix into the brass or copper tube until it goes no further (until you feel some resistance). 

Now apply some additional pressure and push the ReedFix into the compressed end of the tube to expand the tube by a small margin. 

You should test the reed with each "poke" and feel the increased strength and different characteristics of the reed. 

This will strengthen the sound of the pipe chanter reed and in most cases solves any issues you may have with the reed being too easy, squeaky or too sharp.
