Description: In this Weapons Training Class we examine the drone reed and its inner workings. We start with one of the most economical reeds - the EZ Drone. After this we compare and contrast it with one of the newer high-end sets - the Ridgeway by JC Allioux. Finally we take some drone reed related questions like eliminating the common synthetic high-pitched whine on start up and recommendations for a new set.
