Default Re: Drone reeds "double toning"?

Our local Grade One band piper and piping judge Charlie Lumsden used to make little spring-steel gizmos you slide inside a cane bass drone reed to spring the tongue open a bit. You can slide the gizmo in and out to adjust how open the tongue is held.

It made cane bass reeds more stable and reliable.
