Dear All
as a newbie here, firstly id like to say hello, but im also in need of some help. I dont wish to sound too dense but ive moved my chanter reed by accident and now can not tune it in again at all, my pipes sound shocking. trouble is its been so long since i set up the reed I havent got the foggiest how to sort out the problem, im not sure if ive closed it, opened it flattened or sharpened it. (sounds both depending on bag pressure!!) :?:
so advice on this pressing subject would be most welcome
many thanks all
Tom
