Balance Tone drone reeds a success
Posted by William H Arnold on 24th Oct 2019
After playing Balance Tone drone reeds in my Gibson pipes for 2 weeks I couldn't be more pleased! The strike-ins are so satisfying from the get go and I had them balanced in no time at all. Reading the enclosed instructions and watching Major Hitchings' video was all I needed. At band practice the other night the piper next to me commented, "What did you do to your base drone? It sounds so ,,, bold!" Thank you, Major Hitchings!
Excellent drone reeds

These reeds were installed and played. I made one minor adjustment on one of the tenor bridles and that was all that was done. I wasted my money on 2 other types of drone reeds and certainly wish that I'd have gone with these first. The Major has made a great product and I'm certainly thankful for his expertise. Thank you Major Hitchings.
