The White Mambas Drone Reeds

No Comments Bagpipes

New to the market after a year of trials, the MG (McCallum-Grossart) white mambas, as they have been nick named, are proven winners.

The introduction of the unique paddle shaped tenor tongues to the bagpipe reeds, give improved stability and strike in.

In comparison to the original carbons, they are a little livelier, however do not have the over buzz normally associated with carbon-tongued reeds.

Now in stock – Bflat Balance Tone Drone Reeds

No Comments Bagpipes


When playing the bagpipes with other musicians (brass, folk, orchestra etc.) you will need to tune your bagpipes to Bflat at 440 Hz concert pitch. You will require a suitable chanter (e.g. McCallum Bflat Chanter or Shepherd Orchestral Chanter) and depending on your bagpipe set-up, you may also require a suitable set of drone reeds to tune to this lower pitch.

Some drone reeds can be adjusted and tweaked to tune to a lower pitch; some drone reeds are not made to tune at this pitch. Having a set of Bflat drone reeds to suite your Bflat (440 Hz) chanter is very convenient and saves time.

The Bflat drone reeds from Balance Tone are specifically desinged to tune your drones in Bflat at 440 Hz.
