Default Re: Balance Tone VS. BT High Resonance Drone Reeds

I own regular Balance Tone and have owned the High Resonance.

The HR reeds do have more overtones to them. Though in my pipes that also meant they were brash/too intense. In an older set of Lawries I tried they sounded great to me, so YMMV. In either set of reeds I only used the tenors as the basses in my pipes come across as very coarse and pretty loud. Otherwise great reeds, incredibly air efficient.

What can I do to get rid of the trailing drone squeal? I've been using standard Balance Tone reeds for 2 days and like them except for the after squeal.
