G1 Platinum Pipe Reed

G1 Platinum Pipe Reed

G1 PLATINUM is the brand new reed from  John Elliott of G1 reeds improving on the hugely successful G1 original reed, released in 2010 which is now being played worldwide by top grade 1 bands and soloists.

G1 PLATINUM produces more resonance and clarity,  particularly on the top hand. G1 PLATINUM  also has a sharper high A which suits an even wider range of chanters, such as the Sinclair and Naill. It locks in perfectly with your drones producing a lovely balance and TRUE SOUND. G1 PLATINUM sets new standards in reed making!

Please note that a tuning band (available separately) gives added control in achieving the desired strength and pitch of the reed.

Every G1 Reed comes with a FREE G1 Reed Depth gauge, so you can obtain the optimum depth to achieve the best sound from your pipes.






Available in six strengths, VERY EASY, EASY, EASY(PLUS), MEDIUM, MEDIUM(PLUS) & HARD.

Please Note: Postage is calculated at checkout

    Do you offer “band rates ” when purchasing larger numbers of reeds?
    I’ve heard great things about your reeds!

    Thank you,

    Hello John i have just recieved a easy plus chanter reed described as easy plus the question i ask is are your platinum reed bodies platinum in colour as an identification from the normal the reason is i have had delivered today a platinum reed with black hemping on the body I tried by mouth blowing in my McCallum abw chanter but high a and high g were miles out but there was a bit of an improvement in an old Hardie chanter . Your advice would be greatly appreciated many thanks

    I spoke to you on the phone a few weeks ago, ex Royal Scots Dragoon Guards Ps&Ds.

    I would like one Med and one med/hard, you said you’d pick out two good ones (although there all good)

    I would recommend an easy reed or very easy for a complete beginner and work up your blowing stamina to a medium in time . Thanks John

    Hi Sheila , sorry i didn’t reply earlier , I didn’t receive this e mail as it was buried away in the web site messages , to receive a quicker reply please e mail me direct on sales@g1reeds.com . In answer to your question , we may be able to work something out but our prices are already lower as I believe that all of the suppliers in Canada , if we offer a discount then our trade customers don’t take kindly to this .. Please e mail a response to sales@g1reeds.com .. Thanks John

    Hi , The platinum chanter reed only comes in a silver- platinum binding so you have received a different reed to the one you ordered I am afraid . where did you order from >? Thanks John
