 A Scotsman was offered 500 pounds by an American for his dog and 100 pounds by an Englishman. Everyone who knew him was stunned to discover that he took the offer from the Englishman. He explained,"Well,he can walk back home from England but he'll never manage to swim The Atlantic."

Product Reviews                   



"Being a very "wet blower", this product has aided my piping greatly. I noticed a huge improvement immediately over other moisture control systems I've tried, and I got used to the extra weight quickly. I can play much longer without worry about wet reeds and having an extra kanister on hand makes for a quick change if necessary."

"Just finished a week of playing with Kanister, and I am impressed. Reduced the moisture in my bag tenfold without affecting volume in my drones. I like that I can easily remove the system for drying. It is a little heavy, so I have to get used to that, but otherwise a great product for wet blowers like myself. Highly recommend it."
