About the Author

Steve Pribyl spent some time learning to make reeds for a set of pipes made by Tim Britton and more recently for a set of pipes made by Koehler and Quinn. Prior to assembling this site, there would often be a search for various reference books and web pages for suggestion on how to address different reed issues. The suggestions are consolidated here into a list for the benefit of budding reed makers (the author included) everywhere. Steve gained valuable knowledge from personal contact with Tim Britton, Benedict Koehler, Michael O'Donovan, and others.

Comments regarding these (or other) techniques, as well as suggestions for how to improve this site would be greatly appreciated.
