Canning Drone Reeds, Standard Carbon Bass
I’ve always enjoyed the slightly more refined and air efficient Canning tenor drones. They are also quite reliable in terms of the tenors striking in with minimal squealing. I use these with my boys at St. Andrew’s College for this reason. These reeds can be adjusted using the rubber bridal. (The tiniest movement of the bridle can make a substantial difference!) The nosecone of the reed is equipped with a grub screw. Moving the screw towards the end of the reed makes the drone top tune lower on the pin. Moving the screw towards the body of the reed makes the drone top tune higher. I find the tone of these reeds quite refined. The reeds come with excellent instructions.
