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)

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.
