The Reed block from Pipers' Choice

 A great little item for easing reeds. Although it looks like a simple little device, there is a lot of thought that goes into making these. By carefully placing the tips of the pipe chanter reed in the slot on the Reed block and leaving it to sit overnight, you can ease the strength of the pipe chanter reed by closing the blades in a bit. It is important not to interfere with the staple on the reed while doing this. Each block comes with light sandpaper attached to it for small adjustment.

Bagpipe Drone Reeds


Ezeedrone Bagpipe Drone Reeds were introduced just over ten years ago and have quite simply taken the piping world by storm. In terms of competition successes, there is hardly a prize in the solo piping or pipe band competition scene which has not been won by pipers playing Ezeedrone reeds - in most cases the major prizes have been won multiple times with these reeds!



Inverted bass drone set $119.00


Individual Bass Reed $44.00


Additional playing time for pipers who experience problems with moisture

Ideal for sheepskin pipe bags!




The Shepherd SM90

The revolutionary drone reed which keeps pace with ever changing chanter pitches.

 R.T. Shepherd and Son (Scotland) Ltd produced a drone reed that was consistently stable and maintenance free operating at 476Hz.

The product incorporates telescopic tuning slides, bridal mechanism and a specially moulded blade with pre set memory.

Final quality testing is carried out on each and every reed before dispatch with air forced through the SM90 at just over 1lb per square inch, this is the air pressure produced by pipers when blowing their instrument.


Balance Tone Drone Reeds

Reeds have new improvements that include improved functionality, a longer plug and markings for recommended bridle settings. They continue to give a broad, smooth and deep sound, while still maintaining all the other great characteristics of steadiness, air efficiency and tonal quality.  The reeds lock in when tuning and stay locked in.


Balance Tone B Flat Drone Reeds

Due to many requests, now making these B Flat reeds by changing the tongues. Otherwise this reed is the same as the standard Balance Tone Drone Reed.


Balance Tone HR (High Resonance) Drone Reeds

This reed produces more harmonics which gives it a more refined sound which in turn results in higher resonance on the chanter notes. Includes distinguishing black plugs and has all of the functionality of the standard reed.



The Best of Pipe Chanter Reeds


G1 PLATINUM is the new reed from  John Elliott of G1 reeds improving on the hugely successful G1 original reed, released in 2010 which is now being played worldwide by top grade 1 bands and soloists. G1 PLATINUM produces more resonance and clarity, particularly on the top hand. G1 PLATINUM  also has a sharper high A which suits an even wider range of chanters, such as the Sinclair and Naill. It locks in perfectly with your drones producing a lovely balance and TRUE SOUND.

G1 PLATINUM sets new standards in reed making!

Zipped Bannatyne Hide


All the advantages of a leather bag without the need to season as it is fully lined inside plus "Moisture Control" using the Bannatyne Water Trap included!

Pipe Bag Sizes:

Small - Depth 228mm x Length 610mm

AG Extended Small - Depth 241mm x Length 675mm

Medium - Depth 267mm x Length 675mm

Large - Depth 292mm x Length 735mm


Bannatyne hide bags are the most popular choice, offering the weight, feel and balance that comes with a traditional hide bag and because they come with the T-Zip allowing access inside the bag for moisture control accessories also give the ease of setup and maintenance of a synthetic bag.





Bannatyne Pipe Bags are now available in a new shape, the Willie McCallum Custom size (WMC).

Willie has been working for some time in conjunction with Craig Bannatyne on Bags and Moisture control, and this new size represents the first product from that relationship.

There are a number of prominent players already using the shape as well as Willie, including 2012 Clasp Winner Callum Beaumont.

The bag size is designed to be a better ergonomic fit for pipers. It is very slightly bigger in girth than a small but is shaped quite differently in front of the drones to allow greater freedom on the forearm, which can often bear the weight of the pipe with other shapes. Less restriction on the forearm adds to comfort and greater control with the top hand, and as a result less tension in the fingers. Hide Zipper Bag comes with the zip placed at the bottom to allow easier access to Moisture Control Systems.

Water Traps & Drone Valves
Moisture Control System

NEW Mk 3 Version 



Designed and developed with you, the piper, in mind.

 It offers the following benefits:








Spare set of rubber cups


The Moisture Tube (MT)

We have received great feedback on this new product. It is light weight and very effective with purpose built components. When the hot air blown into the bags comes into contact with any restriction or obstacle it causes the hotter air to condense. The MT system’s built in air reductions and the cloth in the cartridge results in restriction of air flow making more condensation and cooling down the air. This new product allows for adjustments to how much restriction you want or need.


Split Stock Moisture Tube (SSMT)

This product offers the same wonderful features of the Moisture Tube but is designed for hide/sheepskin bags using the split stock


Bottle Trap

Improvements include addition of a Chamonix cloth to make the Bottle Trap a lot more effective.  Presently also experimenting with incorporating a removable valve into the system.


Drone Valves

Adjustable screw valve regulates the air flow to the drones.   The screw can be adjusted down the stock making it very easy to set the required pressure.  The valve comes as part of the CMCS3 but can be purchased as a separate product. Cartridges can be added later.


Replacement Cartridges (3)

Set of three drone cartridges supplied with elbow joints and gels.

Quickly and easily dried out and  NO DUST !!


The Trap Dri Moisture Control Trap (patent pending)

 has been developed to prevent excess water escaping from your water trap and saturating your pipe bag by capturing and retaining moisture in the tube to be emptied. A revolution in moisture control. The Trap Dri unit is fitted to your existing water trap tube and does not require a zip bag as it can slip through almost any split stock. (Currently supports the standard tube with external diameter of approx 20 – 23mm used by majority of pipers or tube with internal diameter of 19mm, we will adapt this to fit any tube size or system soon. Full bottle trap set up’s available in shop for synthetic zip bags now). With Trap Dri installed you will obtain a vastly reduced level of moisture into your bag. Designed to be so unrestrictive to airflow you won’t even know it’s there and enhance your playing experience. The trap works by collecting water which condenses inside your water trap tube and locks it inside the Trap Dri. Using a unique combination of air pressure and water flow to draw the water into the Trap Dri unit the water then becomes trapped and can’t make its way to the end of your tube where it can escape through the holes, resulting in better bagpipe performance. Using Trap Dri will prolong the life of your sheepskin or other animal skin bag by drastically reducing the amount of water your bag has to absorb. Using the Trap Dri in a synthetic bag by adapting it to fit your current system will greatly enhance the effectiveness of any existing moisture control by locking water away and preventing it running up the tube and soaking your moisture control system. In either animal skin or synthetic bag you will obtain a steady balance of moisture meaning your pipes will remain in tune longer and can be played longer than before. “Spend your time practicing tunes, not tuning”. The Trap Dri is virtually maintenance free. Simply remove every few weeks to clean. Give your pipes the treatment they deserve by installing this revolutionary new trap which never loses its effectiveness during use.
