Robert Thomson

Well, I take what I can when I can.  Robert Thomson resided in West Kilbride, Leicester and apparently learned reed making from his father.  By 1952 he was selling reeds commercially and had developed his own chanter.  This chanter originally came out of Syracuse NY and is now in Ontario.  According to Jeannie Campbell's book, there is another chanter in Australia.
