Kinnaird Evolution Drone Reeds

A piping innovator out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Rob Kinnaird created one of the first widely produce carbon-fibre-tongued drone reeds on the market. The are long-lasting, steady and reliable. They can be adjusted for pitch and strength using the O-ring bridle, and adjusted for pitch using a grub screw in the “nose cone” of the reed. Moving the screw towards the tip “lengthens” the reed so that it is flatter (the drone top tunes lower on the pin) while moving the screw towards the body of the reed makes the reed sharper so that the drone top tunes higher on the pin. I’ve seen pipers play these reeds for years and years. Clear instructions are included with the reeds.
