One of the main features of the Selbie reed is the patent pending tongue system. The T shape formed tongued fits into the precision engineered reed body. This eliminates the need to glue tongues to the body. It allows the tongue to be removed and cleaned of any residue or seasoning if a reed were to fall into the pipe bag. It can then be refitted to the reed body and set to its original position.
Our reeds have been developed to fit most makes of pipes. Black waxed hemp can be added to the rubber sleeve to ensure a secure fit.
Prior to dispatch, the reeds have been tested for pitch and strength, and are delivered with instructions on how to fine tune the reed to obtain the perfect balance between chanter and drones.
