  1. easy concept!

    I recently purchased the valves to help with blowing stamina. These valves are adjustable so that I can keep my bag as full as I possibly can. Takes some time to find the sweet spot, but when you do it’s easy sailing from there! Great product!

  2. Drone valves

    Working on transitioning to bag pipes was having trouble with keeping drones going and striking in. Another band member suggested the drone valves. I am impressed after installation I was able to keep 3 drones going.
    Before I could only keep one going and I have not adjusted them yet. Worked as advertised. Very happy.

    Easily installed. Working on adjusting them. Appreciate the screw adjustment.

  5. difficulty adjusting

    I can’t really fairly evaluate the product, Because I’ve not been able to use them. The adjustment for the strength of my blowing is made with a screw on the valve that is reached through the drone stock. However, I can’t find a tool long enough to reach the valve to adjust by going through the drone stock. But initially, they have not corrected the problem for which they were purchased. At this point I will have to uninstall the drone valves, make a slight adjustment, reinstall the drone valves, and then try playing the pipes. Repeat as necessary. (John's reply: Hi, sorry I would email you, but you didn't leave your name, so I'll post my hint here. You need a long handle Phillips head screw driver which will reach the screw, or you can take it out using the zipper on the bag if you have one. It will take just a couple/few adjustments to find what's right for you, then you can just forget it. Hope this helps. John)

  6. Did the trick

    I play McCallum P2 pipes with Balance Tone drone reeds. I had been having problems with my strike-ins and cut-offs. I purchased these drone valves and, after some fiddling around with the setup, my problems are gone. I haven't noticed any discernible loss in drone volume.
