Adjusting the Bridle 2

This 2nd vid is a demo of adjusting an uilleann chanter reed that closed up over time. This is mainly aimed at customers overseas or who may have reed probs.

Adjusting a bridle

Same chanter. A demo of reed bridle adjusting if it has came loose or the reed became too open during transportation across continents/ climates and examination by customs. Adjusting the reed for the tuning of the back D would need another video. A closed up reed may require the loosening of the bridle if it is too squashed.
