X-Treme Drone Reeds

$111.00$145.00 $82.00$116.00

The X-Treme drone reeds by Chris Armstrong come in two models, the Premium (gold package) and the Standard (yellow package). Both drone reeds play and sound identical. The only difference is that the Premium drone reed has the added benefit of being manufactured from a hydrophobic material that repels water for better moisture control over extended playing times. See below for more information.

Minimum of 2 sets (2 Premium, 2 Standard, or 1 of each) per order.

Product Description

The X-Treme drone reeds by Chris Armstrong come in two models, the Premium (gold package) and the Standard (yellow package). Both drone reeds play and sound identical. The only difference is that the Premium drone reed has the added benefit of being manufactured from a hydrophobic material that repels water for better moisture control over extended playing times.

Minimum of 2 sets (2 Premium, 2 Standard, or 1 of each) per order.

Product features for both sets of reeds include:

  • Specifically designed tuning screw with a finer pitch thread to ensure an airtight seal without the need for additional tape etc. This also allows for a great degree of precision when setting the pitch.
  • Carbon Fibre tongue which provides a robust, stable and rich, full sound.
  • Engineered and manufactured to a high level of precision to ensure good air efficiency.

Chris Armstrong guarantees quality because every reed that leaves his workshop is hand assembled by him and tested (twice) in standard medium strength sets of bagpipes.
