Crozier V2 Carbon Fibre Drone Reeds
Australia’s Robert Crozier, a member of the World Champion Victoria Police Pipe Band in the 1990s, has been a piping innovator for decades now. This is his newest generation of carbon fibre drone reed, with a curved body rather than a curved tongue, and pitched slightly higher than the previous generation. His reeds are known for their full-bodied sound and cane-like tone and steadiness. The reeds can be adjusted for pitch and strength using the rubber bridle. The rubber plug in the end of the reed allows for further adjustment of pitch. Lengthening the plug makes the reed flatter so the drone top tunes lower on the pin. Shortening the plug makes the reed sharper, causing the drone top to tune higher on the pin.
