The Benefits of a Piper's Pal
Moisture is critical to the performance of cane reeds. Too much moisture results in mildew formation on the reed, while too little results in loose bindings, open sides, and split cane.
Ideally, you would store your reeds under conditions that maintain enough moisture that they can be restored to playing condition quickly, but not moist enough to result in mildew. This is what the Piper's Pal is designed to do.
The Piper's Pal maintains optimum moisture conditions for the storage of cane reeds. If the reeds are too wet, Piper's Pal will absorb moisture from the reeds to prevent mildew. If the reeds are too dry, the reeds will absorb moisture from Piper's Pal. Dry reeds placed in Piper's Pal will be restored to optimum moisture content in about 24 hours, and will remain that way until they are removed.

1.Reeds will always be ready to play.
