Pipe Major Richard Parkes MBE (Field Marshall Montgomery)
“I have played all of the synthetic reeds available. Over the last several weeks I have been using Kelt drone reeds (by Mark Faloon and James Knox). They produce a rich sound, great stability, air efficiency and a tone indistinguishable from quality cane. A bonus feature is the complete ease of strike-in. Simply blowing into the pipe brings the drones up without fail.”
Pipe Major Bill Livingstone (Ontario – Canada)
“As a pipe major I had been on the lookout for a more stable and cane like drone reed without the difficulties of actual cane. A drone that would also not have a plastic sound on the strike in. A reed that would perform in many varieties of weather that we experience in Northern Ireland and Scotland and most of all a sound that adjudicators would enjoy.
And in Kelt Reeds I have found all these qualities.
After the initial set up of the reed’s they tend to be Hassel free and a joy to play, and would highly recommend them.
I am currently playing them for the second competition season as is almost all of the band with its large variety of makes of pipes.”
