Today, I want to take a moment to talk to you about an important development here at Melvin Reeds. As many of you know, my commitment to crafting high-quality bagpipe chanter reeds has always been at the heart of my business. I take immense pride in the craftsmanship and artistry that goes into creating each reed, ensuring they meet the standards of excellence you expect from Melvin Reeds.
Over the past few months, I have invested in new technology to improve efficiency in the precision reed-making process, but some things remain unchanged. The finishing touches, the attention to detail, and the hands-on care that each reed requires are time-consuming and essential to ensuring a consistent, top-quality product.
Because of the time and dedication involved in crafting these reeds, I’ve come to a difficult decision. To continue offering you the same level of excellence, I need to make a modest adjustment to the price of Melvin bagpipe chanter reeds. Starting December 1, 2023, the price of my reeds will be $17.50, up from $15.50.
I understand this change might come as a surprise, and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for your continued support. Your trust and loyalty have allowed Melvin Reeds to pursue a passion for creating the best bagpipe chanter reeds possible.
Rest assured, this change will enable us to maintain the highest level of quality and consistency in every reed we make. I remain committed to providing you with a product you can be proud of. I am excited to continue this journey with you, and look forward to serving you for years to come. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you for being a part of the Melvin Reeds family.
Thank you for your understanding and for being part of my journey. I appreciate your support and look forward to crafting beautiful music together. Stay tuned for more exciting updates, and I simply cannot wait to see the amazing music you'll create with these reeds -- and your chanters.
