The Boderiou RedWood Drone Reed was designed and developed in Brittany by Xavier and Jakez Boderiou. They are a cross-over between the traditional cane drone reeds and synthetic drone reeds. The body of the reed in Padouk (African Red Wood) allows for maximum absorption and stability. The glass fibre tongues for the tenors and Carbon Fibre tongue for the bass drone are maintenance-free. Each set of Boderiou RedWood drone reeds is tested on several instruments in order to ensure compatibility with your bagpipe.
