> reeds don't crack by themselves.
I KNOW that at least one of them did. One blade cracked down the
centerline while sitting in the reed seat of the chanter overnight.
You would have to have a large batch of exceptional arundo donax to
never have reeds crack. Until I started wetting the bottom inch before
tying on, I had about a 25% failure rate from reeds cracking overnight
after tying up the first or second time.
