Kinnaird Evolution Drone Reeds
The Kinnaird Carbon Fibre Drone reed was redesigned in 2013 to offer brighter tenor reeds. The Kinnaird Evolution Drone Reeds are bright but not buzzy. The very popular Kinnaird Bass reed is largely the same as the previous design with slightly more power. Similar to the Kinnaird Carbon Fibre Reed, a metal set screw and allen key allows for easy adjustment of tuning height. The reed seats are glass fibre and stronger than other brands. Pitch adjustment is with the tuning screw and o-ring bridle to control air flow. These reeds offer very good air efficiency. They are easy to set-up and offer excellent moisture resistance. The reeds have a curved carbon fibre moulded, cane like tongue.
If you play an easy reed or struggle with your pipes, consider the "Easy" versions which come set up out of the box easier than our regular reeds. Customization available, please inquire.
"I have been playing a full set of the new Kinnaird Evolution Drone Reeds and am absolutely delighted with the entire combination. In my Naill pipe they are producing a full tonal quality without being overpowering. The tenors are tuning around the hemp line, resulting in a bright and warm effect. They balance perfectly with the bass. The harmonics resulting from the entire combination are quite impressive. All three reeds are extremely air efficient, and probably require about the same amount of air as a good going set of cane reeds. They produce a depth and warmth without the undesirable buzz associated with many synthetic reeds. I am also pleased with their ease of "strike in" and how easy it is to manage an efficient cutoff at the end of a performance. The efficiency of the reeds allows for amazing tuning stability while performing. In short, I'm loving these reeds!" - Bob Worrall
