The Kinnaird Carbon Fibre Drone Reeds are the original drone reed designed by Rob Kinnaird. A new design was introduced in 2013 Kinnaird Evolution Drone Reeds. The latest design introduced in 2018 are the Kinnaird Edge Drone Reeds.
Unique curved carbon fibre tongue results in a vibrant rich cane sound. Reeds are simple to set-up: O-ring bridle is used to set the strength of the reed and adjust the tuning position. Adjustment screw allows for fine tuning. Reeds are incredibly steady & require very little maintenance.
Available with "Regular" or "Lower Pitch" bass reed. The regular bass suits most older sets of pipes, while the lower pitch bass works very well in newer pipes. If you play an easy reed or struggle with your pipes, consider the "Easy" versions which come set up out of the box easier than our regular reeds. Customization available, please inquire.
Matt MacIsaac says: "I have been busy playing your reeds and enjoying the heck out of them....these things are terrific! I think they are the best I've played, and they really like my drones. My bass is really rich and deep, which brings out the nice ring in the rest of the instrument. They're also rock steady and easy to find. I've gotten a lot of superlative comments on them by several respected people in the last few months!"
