Re: All information regarding Regulators

"The good news is that in general regulators are easier to tune than chanters as all of the notes on the regs are on the same octave and you have the assistance of the tuning pins."

Very usefull link to article by Geoff wooff! Cheers

Re: Flat high E F and G

I have gotten handwritten notes from Geoff on how to make the reeds!
Mick obrien also suggested to make a reed with a wider staple!
Whether or not it works what is the logic behind this? More air flow? Would this also
Give the chanter extra volume?
Thanks for the replies!
