He used to post here as Ted, but hasn't dropped by for a few years.

What kind of cane did makers like Rowsome and Egan use? Spanish or Californian?

I have no idea about Egan. There is some correspondance somewhere on the web where Leo is praising some California cane he had gotten hold of. In fact he was soliciting more, and spoke of hoarding the supply he had.

From Ted Anderson, An Piobaire X, Issue 1:

Quote:
Dan made reeds with only a pocket knife for
a tool. His reeds looked crude but played beautifully.
He had a stack of letters from Leo Rowsome in which
Leo would ask for more cane. Dan had lots of cane
stuck up in the rafters and all over his garage. He would
only send Leo about a shoe box full of tubes at a time.
He said Leo would not have written to him as often if
he sent a larger supply


Egan would probably have access to Californian Cane when he arrived in the states. I imagine the drone reeds would have been elder. I have cane reeds in mine at the minute and they're very strident, equal to wide bore pipes. Perhaps the other reeds were elder too?

Craig Fischer has an interesting article on the Sean Reid Society about finding an original Coyne reed.
