Elevation: FAQ

Newly designed for North American bands. Pitched around 478Hz, with rich harmonics and strong ,clear projection.  

Adrian Melvin worked in partnership with Roddy MacLellan to develop a chanter reed to work specifically in the MacLellan Elevation pipe chanter. The reed has a brass formed staple. 

The combined MnM design provides a lower pitch, with a thicker top hand, and is more resistant to drier conditions.
