The Pipe Reed Strength Tester is a great tool for any piper. This will help you determine the strength of the pipe chanter reed that you are playing. When you have a pipe chanter reed that is a good strength for you, simply use the tester on the top of your pipe chanter, and determine the strength of the reed. Then the next time you need to order a reed, you can request the strength that will suit you best.
We use this reed strength tester for all of the reeds we sell. Here are the levels that we use. Please note the following are levels of water column inches. Soft – 27 or lower, Medium – 28 to 37, Hard – 38 or more.

G1 Platnium reeds are made solely by John Elliott of Scotland, using a combination of traditional and innovative techniques producing a precision reed. The Platnium reeds are crafted to a higher standard than the regular G1s. Each tube of cane is personally hand selected and only the best are deemed acceptable for G1 Platnium’s supreme standards. The cane is sourced from top cane growers in France and Spain depending on the season. It is then treated and prepared in a highly skilled process. All reeds are pre-tested and individually tested.
