CHESNEY COPPER REED : 

MODEL FEATURES
The Chesney Copper Reed is designed to be flatter on the top hand and sharper on the bottom hand in comparison to our Brass Pipe Reed.

Developed using a split copper staple and designed to deliver great clarity on the bottom hand with an extra added breadth and depth built in on the top hand, notably on high G.
The extra depth on the top hand is retained even through the easiest reeds.

It is the Chesney Reed that is best balanced to be played in a wide range of chanters, as demonstrated by the bands that play it, including Field Marshal Montgomery, Inveraray and District, Shotts and Dykehead, Boghall and Bathgate, Fife Police, Simon Fraser University and by many others throughout the grades.

The Chesney Copper Reed has been played to win the last 7 Grade 1 World Championships and the last 4 Juvenile World Championships in succession.
