Chesney Copper Pipe Chanter Reeds


The Chesney Pipe Reeds are hand chiselled using select cane sourced from France by reedmakers with over 42 years of experience in the art of reedmaking.


The unique design and construction of Chesney pipe reeds gives them an inbuilt ability to maintain their pitch and stability even with a limited playing time and when conditions vary during a competition day. That’s why they are trusted by the worlds best.


The Chesney Copper Reed is flatter on the top hand and sharper on the bottom hand in comparison to Chesney 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 Chesney Copper Reed has been played to win the last 10 Grade 1 World Championships and the last 6 Juvenile World Championships in succession.
