This is a very good vid Bruceís produced several year ago. Iím always intrigued by it ..because when I run the same test with EZ drone tenors I get ca 25 seconds....and the EZ reeds are set very very very efficiently and playing a 29-30Ē chanter reed.
Interestingly,I get 45 seconds on the bass alone..which is an MG Carbon.

I did try BT reeds a few years ago but did not at all care for the tone ( in my pipes) so immediately returned them to the retailer.
