The windway of the chanter on each full set is fitted with a stop key as standard. This makes life much easier when tuning the drones and also has advantages when playing with other instruments.
The drones, volume-wise, give a great balance to the chanter and have a lovely deep sound. As well as this, they’re extremely air-efficient, which really adds to the enjoyment of playing the pipes.
The reeds we use for the drones are very high quality, synthetic reeds called Ezeedrones. The beauty of these reeds is that once they’re set, they require little or no adjustment. They are very air-efficient, stable and sound great.
The bag is hand made and stitched by world renowned bag maker Lawrence Thomson to a template which we’ve developed to give the player maximum comfort when playing.
The luxury hand made bellows are fully padded with hand-sewn plush leather cushions on the front and back to ensure comfort and ease of play. The bellows are made from the highest quality components to ensure many years of great playing.
