Can you tell us a bit about your method for those who aren't familiar with it? e.g. do you use rolled staples or tubing? Do you suggest methods for working out the best reed for a chanter we are not familiar with? Do you provide tips on setting up regulators? etc.

Thx,

Both types of staple are listed and described in the book, my method is not really similar to many other makers as I am mostly self taught. I focus on chanter reeds in this book and the style of reed is based on my own design.

Just downloaded a copy. I'll have a read through over the next few days.

Thank you.
I've got Paddy Keenan, Finbar Furey and Cillian Vallely's seal of approval so far, Cillian said my method is similar to his.
