Drone reeds are the vibrating objects used to produce each drone's sound. Bass drone reeds are designed specifically to produce a bass pitch, making them larger and usually longer than tenor drone reeds. There are two types of drone reeds used in the world of bagpipes: Cane drone reeds (made of natural spanish cane), and "Synthetic" drone reeds (made of various non-organic materials).

Andrew Douglas Andrew is a prolific practitioner of the bagpipe, having been active at the highest level of pipe bands, solo competition, teaching, and creative endeavors for the past 20 years. He's also the founder and creator of Dojo U and of PipersDojo.com
