Following year of development and testing, I am delighted to introduce a neu bass drone reed to the market. The new Canning polycarbonate bass is modeled on the classic carbon fibre bass drone reed, however the introduction of a different tongue gives pipers a greater range of options when selecting the type of reeds and materials they prefer to work with.
During its development, the polycarbonate bass was tested in every possible weather condition, including conditions of extrem cold and wet. The reed has proven to handle moisture extremely well even in the wettest of conditions- an essential quality to any piper who needs to be able to count on their reed regardless of the weather. I personally tested the new bass by playing it in every band and solo competition of the 2011 season, including winning all five major championships with the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band.
