New Synthetic Bass Drone Reed.
If this says SOLD , please just enquire as we are making them most days.
Black Diamond Highland bagpipe bass drone reed. Warm tone and durable. Easily adjustable. Carbon fibre tongue, synthetic body.
Consistent strike in, no rasping or double toning once set. Economical with air. Individually tested upon assembly (that’s a fact), in my 1940’s Sinclair’s. Just under the hemp on the top slide and 2 – 2.5 fingers on the bottom slide, with only a fraction of an inch tuning alteration over more than 20 reeds.
From a long standing cane drone reed maker…
“I’d be delighted if I could get this sort of sound from a cane reed!”
Local major pipers have enthusiastic to use these bass drone reeds after their testing.
Tenors already in the testing stages.
Condition is “New”. Post to any UK postcode for the listed price.
