Selbie Imitation Cane Drone Reeds have been designed to provide the stability of a synthetic reed while providing the tonal qualities found in the finest cane reeds.
One of the main features of the Selbie reed is their patent pending tongue system. The T shape formed tongue fits into the precision engineered reed body. This eliminates the need to glue tongues to the body. It allows the tongue to be removed and cleaned of any residue or seasoning if a reed were to fall into the pipe bag. It can then be refitted to the reed body and set to its original position.
Selbie reeds have been developed to fit most makes of pipes. Black waxed hemp can be added to the rubber sleeve to ensure a secure fit.

Very pleased with drone reeds. Tried these reeds upon recommendation from band member. Right out of the box they worked nice with only a little adjustment. I am on my way to a actually playing my pipes.

My bass drone reed finally s--- the bed and I needed a replacement. Lots of great choices and I wanted to try something I haven't used before. Bought the Selbie and have no regrets. Required no tweaking. Plugged it in, tuned the drones and back in business.

Lives up to claim.

Having used several kinds of synthetic drone reeds in my life the Selbie reeds offer excellent tone and ease of use. This is the closest reed to plug and play. They hold up in adverse playing conditions and do not cut out when saturated. They hold tuning.
