Default Re: Drone Reed tip.

On Pipes Drums website 'Tips', there was a piece of advice by C.E Kron stating

"If your bass drone wants to roar when struck in, it might be riding high on the bottom pin. If so your reed might be too sharp. A quick fix, if time is short, is to put a bit of tape over a third to half of the bush at the top. This will flatten the drone and allow you to shorten by moving the middle joint down the bottom pin.

For the first time I'm trying to get MG White Mambas going, but the bass is certainly roaring!! I'm not sure what the tip means, can anyone advise please?
