Default Re: Steady pressure and repurposing equipment.

Yes....a long small diameter tube plugged into a drone top will give a reading.

You could put a smaller disc of tape over the dial face glass ...leaving just enough to see a bit of the needle pointer. The student needs only to play...and when at the 'right' pressure for the 'right' pleasant sound from the set up.... have someone mark where the arrow is at.

Then going forward...this is the target he must maintain with little/ no deviation to achieve a steady tone and playing technique. ( with that particular chanter reed)

You could visit jori chisolm's website to see the manometer he retails to give you a clear perspective.
