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.
