RT Shepherd and Son after approximately 12 months development with a German machining company are now ready to present a fully automated CNC machine produced single blade reeds.
This machine is able to deliver controlled production parameters such as gouging, shaping, profiling and strength thus producing a measured profile specification and measured cane classification helping us to provide the quality of reed we are renowned for. The Shepherd chanter reed was the catalyst that created RT Shepherd and Sons (Scotland) Ltd and today it remains the cornerstone of our business and the reed choice of champions.
Superior production methods and strict quality control at each stage of manufacture (10 stages in total) ensure that the length of the Shepherd reed remains constant in relation to its other variables. The end result - a unique reed produced and finished by a combination of dedicated craftsmen and advanced machinery techniques and providing greater efficiency, easy adjustment for weaker blowers and easy adjustment to raise pitch.
This consistency makes it easier to manipulate the reed for the required strength and still maintained its desired consistency of pitch and vibrancy
The characteristic of the pipe reed as well as being dependant on the rigidity of the cane being used also depends on the control of the following ratios in the construction and design
Length / Curvature
Thickness / Length
Staple production consistency
