also do a search on andrew lenz. he has some tips on reed manipulation that may help. this process is trial and error. keep at it and you'll get it. we all went through this.

I know that a lot of pipers are going to say that this is scarelige but try the Clanrye synthetic. If you are fairly new to piping(I'm guessing that you are)it is no hassle. You can put it in the chanter tune it no more hassles. I've been getting a year out of them no trouble. Both times I've had to replace them was due to accident on my part. So the expense is well worth it.
Cane reeds do sound better but for me the clanrye's have been a real boon. I don't have to blow in new reeds or worry about manipulation and I get to enjoy my favorite passtime.
Oh they are availble in 3 strengths and it dosen't cahnge throughout the life of the reed.
