Behind the Scenes at G1 Reeds with John Elliot
November 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST
How do you make a chanter reed? We're not quite sure, but we know who is! In today's session, John Elliot, founder of G1 Reeds, will give us a tour of the G1 reeds facility, and then talk all about the art of making reeds. Have your questions ready, and we'll see you Sunday!
John Elliott is the founder of G1 Reeds, and long-time member of the 2x World Champion Inveraray and District Pipe Band.
John has over a quarter-century's experience making reeds, chanters and other pipe band products to the highest standard. He is renowned for his unforgiving ear and will accept nothing less than excellence!
Since starting G1 in 2010 making bagpipe reeds, the company has grown in size and now manufactures a range of bagpipe products. Their latest innovation, the G1 platinum pipe chanter, is being played at the top of grade one by Inveraray and District and many other bands (at all levels). John has amassed a dedicated and meticulous team of workers who are trained to the same "platinum" standard that defines the G1 name.
