That would be the result of testing many different reeds
in many different chanters!

All reeds are not the same and some are pure crap!
Different designs produce different results, just
listen to a contest sometime!

JM,
Please, please tell me which ones are, as you put it so eloquently, **pure crap** so that I may avoid them.

Thanks!
Shawn

JM,
Mr. Moehle (shawn) asked that I check back on his question. I see there has not been a reply. Were you just "pulling our leg" or is the statement based upon fact?

Thanks,
Jeff

JM does not seem too eager to put down any specific reedmakers, and I can't say I blame him!

Everyone seems to have good things to say about Shepherd reeds. And Megarity-Ross also has a good reputation on this board. All of this is pretty consistent with my experience, these are the two best brands I've used.

O.K., I'll start this ball rolling. I was pretty disappointed with the Wygent reeds I purchased, especially the "select" $18 reed. They were all pretty weak in strength, and not suprisingly, didn't put out much volume. And the bottom hand embellishments didn't rip the way you would want. I admit, I ordered the low strength reeds, so maybe their high strength reeds would have worked better for me. Wygent only offers two grades of strength, as opposed to the three grades of strength that most other reed makers offer. I guess I am at about a medium grade of strength.

Does anyone have an opinion about the Higgins reed? Some guys in my band swear by them, but I haven't got a chance to play one yet. The guys that swear by them always have played super hard reeds, so I haven't been too anxious to try one! But their chanters sound superb.

i agree with jeff..and i do blame jm.
one would think that if one cares to make bold statements, then the facts should be forthcoming.
it seems jm has an interesting way of stating his bias as facts. that sir, has been my observation here, rmmb, and on the dunsire forum.
experience and credibility are definitely seperate attributes.
