G1 Pipe Chanter Reed
^^PLEASE CHOOSE STRENGTH OF REED^^

G1 reeds are made solely by John Elliott, using a combination of traditional and innovative techniques producing a precision reed. Each tube of cane is personally hand selected and only the best will be deemed acceptable for G1ís high 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 only known to G1 reeds. Then the reeds are manufactured in small batches, which ensure a premium quality. Each reed is then tested, varnished, then tested again by John personally. He will reject any reed that does not meet his own high standard ensuring you, the customer, complete satisfaction.
