Default Re: Dumb Question: Drones vs. Chanter Reed Strength

No part of your instrument should require any more air than necessary. It definitely sounds as though your drone is far too open. IMO, it's really important to understand that synthetic reeds very often DO NOT come out of the box set to the right strength FOR YOU. Having to adjust them is quite normal. It's also normal for them to drift out of adjustment over time, both due to climate conditions, and because of the pressure imparted by airflow through them.
