Description: Blowing steady and finding that perfect "tone zone" on a reed can be tricky business - but, with a little logic and the help of a manometer, Andrew will show it's actually surprisingly simple - in theory! All that's left is to develop the technique and skill needed to keep that manometer steady! What is a manometer you ask? How 'bout we just show you! Check this class out!

  1. I am having an issue with the Pipe chanter Sweet Spot Range. The range between the squeak, and just stopping all together is very very small.. When I try to back off on pressure, the chanter will stop; and when I blow harder to start in again, I am already at the top of the range.
    Drone balance is good, 'strike in' is easy, I have tried several different reeds; and the problem continues.
    I have tried wetting the reed, squeezing the sound box, plugging the drones, etc..
    Reeds: EZ-PC Med Ridge-cut (6 months), EZ-PC Med (30 Days), Shepherd Med/Hard (10 Months), EZ-PC Med Ridge-Cut(2 months), Shephard Med/Hard (7 months).
    Any suggestions?
