Highland Bagpipe Chanter Reeds

All of our chanter reeds come pre-tested and packaged individually in a plastic reed pack. This will protect them from chipping when not in use. Reeds come in 3 different strengths, soft, medium and hard. Beginners often go with the soft. Most pipers go with medium. If you like crushing beer cans on your forehead, go with the hard.

Ross Pipe Chanter Reed
(soft, medium, or hard)
BPR10 – $22
Ross is a well respected name in reeds. You can't go wrong!

Shepherd Pipe Chanter Reeds
(soft, medium, or hard)
BPR11 – $24
Shepherd is a well respected name in reeds. You can't go wrong!

Clanrye Synthetic Pipe Chanter Reeds
(soft, medium, or hard)
BPR12 – $99
The Clanrye is a great choice if you plan to play outdoors in unpredictable weather conditions. In general, the tone is not as good as cane, but the stability is worth it if you're not sure about your playing conditions. It does for the chanter what synthetic reeds have done for drones. Not a stock item. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Highland Bagpipe Drone Reeds

Although traditional cane drone reeds are still available, pretty much everyone plays with synthetic these days. Let us know if you have any questions.

Ezeedrone (EzDrone) Synthetic Drone Reeds
(set of 1 bass and 2 tenor reeds)
BPR20 – $159
EzDrone drone reeds are made in Scotland. They are being used by many of the top pipe bands and solo players today. These are probably the most widely played drone reeds in the world. They need only about 5 hours of playing-in time for optimum tone.

Shepherd Synthetic Drone Reeds (old style)
(set of 1 bass and 2 tenor reeds)
BPR23 – $79
One of the very first all-plastic drone reeds, the Shepherd synthetic reed was revolutionary when it was introduced. This reed offers a nice lower priced alternative if you do not play too often, but want the ease of synthetic drone reeds. These do not require any playing-in time. Tongues are replaceable, so you can buy a replacement set if your tongues wear out.

Shepherd SM90 Synthetic Drone Reeds
(set of 1 bass and 2 tenor reeds)
BPR24 – $119
The SM90s are the next generation of Shepherd synthetic drone reeds. They give a better tone than the original Shepherd Plastic drone reeds, and have a telescopic adjustment to allow for optimum tuning for your drones. These do not require any playing-in time. Tongues are replaceable, so you can buy a replacement set if your tongues wear out. Not a stock item. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Henderson Synthetic Drone Reeds
(set of 1 bass and 2 tenor reeds)
BPR21 – $139
Made in Scotland by piper Murray Henderson. He has had a distinguished solo career, and has been making drone reeds for many years. These are a good quality drone reed that fit in most makes of bagpipes. They will give your pipes a nice full-bodied tone. They need only about 5 hours of playing-in time for optimum tone. Not a stock item. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Selby Synthetic Drone Reeds
(set of 1 bass and 2 tenor reeds)
BPR22 – $139
Made by Neil Selbie of Scotland. These are a good quality drone reed that fit in most makes of bagpipes. They will give your pipes a nice full-bodied tone. They need only about 5 hours of playing-in time for optimum tone. Tongues are replaceable, so you can buy a replacement set if your tongues wear out. Not a stock item. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Traditional Cane Drone Reeds
(set of 1 bass and 2 tenor reeds)
BPR25 – $25
Real cane reeds are considered to be the best sounding drone reeds you can get. Unfortunately, they can be very unpredictable, especially with weather, temperature, and humidity changes. If you play always under predictable conditions, and you're willing to constantly tweek and baby your reeds, then give them a try.
Tested and packaged in matched sets. Includes maintenance information. Made in Scotland by McRostie. Not a stock item. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
