Narrow bore problem

Post  Bob Salter on Sun Jul 10, 2011 2:03 pm

Just completed a narrow bore uilleann chanter. I am having issues with c# and back d. The scale plays beautifully up to that point then when I try to play the c# or d the pitch actually lowers. I made one a few weeks ago which did the same but I was suspicious of the bore. I have made the latest one with the gun drill I mentioned elsewhere and I know the reamers to be extremely accurate. That only leaves two possibilities, either the reed(most likely) or the size of the fingerholes is too small(3.8mm) and that is causing the problem.
Does anyone have any ideas?
