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

A manometer to check pressure for chanter reeds also works well to check pressure for drones. Like this:
I can check the players chanter reed strength and range, and pop it right over the drone reed and adjust to match. I know many keep saying don't use manometers, but this is such an easy way to check all of your reeds strengths without guessing I find it very helpful.

Also- we all played Ezees to start. I had one player would kept having problems with his bass. Turns out the tongue had snapped under the bridle! Never saw that before. If the reed won't settle in, give it a tug and make sure the tongue isn't broke.
