hi, yes the maths is complicated, especially when you use the calculations for whistes and flutes for reed instruments. I made that mistake as well. THe reed produces its own note which the tomne holes then modify by the same principle by above. Have looked at the physics of oboes etc but it is beyond my simple brain to work out.Good luck.Keith

Well what can I say, your top note being an A flat is just about were I'd put an A flat not a top D, however as it has a big bore the holes should be quite close together. I can't think of an off the shelf solution (I was hoping that would have been an option) Insteadwe'll work this it bit by bit. Firstly the reed not wanting to sound the bottom note is due to the bore compared to the strength of the reed, if we first try and solve this by doing so we will change the scale of the insturment. So the first thing you need to do is either with bees wax (traditional) or the wax around a cheese (such as Edam, easier to use) take a tiny bit and put it in the middle of the tounge of the and play to see what happens. You may need to move the blob of wax up or down. have a go and let me know what happens to the scale.Keith

HI had a thought about your pibgorn. Can you measure the length from the very top to the centre of each hole (in Milimetres) and the diametre of each hole. depending on their location you may be able to get away with a synthetic reed, which is far better for the occassional player.let me know and I'll have a look at the various reeds etc that I have tried and see if I can match one up for you.Keith

hi sorry for not getting back sooner but my father passed away on the 14th so things have been a little upside down. the best thing I can do is direct you to gerrad Kilbrides site that he set up a few years ago. also what reeds are you using? this can change the tuning across the scale. If the reeds you have have a bridal then very slight movements up or down will strtch or compress the scale, the best advice is have a fiddle (exact opposite to advice in the book - but that is because you have already changed the original set up of the pipe). Take a reeding of all the notes then move up by a millimetre at a time first up and then note the changes, then move a millimetre down from the original and take readings again. then yo can determin which way you should go. Do it by small amounts at a time.It will either drive you insane or get you into an addiction.hwyl Keith
