Balance Tone Drone Reeds - High Resonance
Balance Tone drone reeds, developed by PM Bruce Hitchings, have been designed for effortless and dependable strike-in, maximum air efficiency, and great sound. Glass fiber tongues allow for a steady tone, and the tongue is designed to lie flat, keeping it truer longer. Reed volume and pitch can be adjusted, and each reed can be turned off. Balance Tone reeds are used by prominent pipe bands and solo pipers and are valued for their steadiness and rich, cane-like harmonics. Made in Scotland.
The High Resonance reeds were developed to produce enhanced harmonics and a more refined sound, which result in higher resonance on the chanter notes.
