Sounds Supreme (John Elliott, Ontario) – Moulded reed

This is John’s ‘moulded’ reed. That is to say, it has no sharp, ridgecut shoulders. Moulded reeds are sometimes not as blatantly loud as the best ridgecuts, but they can provide a sweeter sound, and a great drone blend. Moulded reeds also tend to be more free of squeaks than ridgecuts. If you are a piobiareachd player, your best bet to get a stable piobaireachd high G is a moulded reed, and this is a good one. This is a good solo and band reed, and I recommend it more than any other for use in the McCallum C1 and C2 band chanter. Band discounts are available.
