TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: The trend today is to sink a chanter reed as far as it can go in the reed seat, and then tape all the holes that are sharp, or drill the holes bigger if the note is flat. Raising a reed slightly or just getting the reed placed ideally in the seat can make a world of difference.
