Default Smallpipe drone reed adjustment

Hi everyone,

I just bought a used set of McCallum Fred Morrison mouth blown smallpipes. I am looking for a little advice on setting them up. They have ezee drone reeds same as my GHB. My question is about the set up of the drone reeds. How much pressure should it take to shut them off. Is it the same as my GHB i.e. blowing quite hard to shut them off or should I get used to blowing more gently?

Thanks. I am sure this will be the first of many questions.

Most mouthblown smallpipes need to be blown considerably more gently than GHB.
