BAGPIPE REED MAKING SPECIALISTS

Manufactured from a material with very similar tonal qualities to natural cane, Ezeedrone bagpipe drone reeds produce a sound which is practically indiscernible from that of the best traditional cane reeds.

Even when striking in, Ezeedrone tenor reeds provide a pleasing double-tone which translates to a full sounding and very steady drone tone when the bagpipe is played.

Ezeedrone bass reeds are equally steady and produce a rich, deep, quality sound, which is one of the main characteristics of all best sounding bagpipes.

Ezeedrone reeds are manufactured to a very high level of precision and are subjected to rigorous quality checks prior to distribution.

They are pre-adjusted and will settle immediately in most bagpipes, requiring little maintenance and producing excellent harmonics when accompanied by a good chanter with a well balanced reed. Any further adjustment should be made with care and in accordance with the instructions available here. Specific questions may be directed, via e-mail to

Ezeedrone Bagpipe Drone Reeds are also available for bagpipes other than Highland Pipes, as listed below. Whilst Highland Pipe drones are, by and large, generic by design and therefore have similar reeding requirements, Scottish Small Pipes and Border Pipes vary significantly between manufacturers, and require reeds specific to the make of instrument. A selection of options is available and can be seen within the on-line shop section of this website.
