Tips for Kinnaird Evolution Drone Reeds
If you are having problems with your Evolution Drone reeds
, here are some tips to help resolve any issues:
-Check to see that the reeds are seated tightly and securely. If air leaks past the reed through the reed seat, the reeds will squeal and not function correctly. If needed, add or remove some hemp until they are seated solidly in the bottom of the drone.
-To check for air leaks, remove the bottom section of the drone with the reed. Cover the top of the tuning pin with your finger and blow the reed by mouth. If any air leaks, you will need to re-hemp the reed until the connection is airtight.
-If the reed squeals, the tongue length is too short. To increase the strength, move the o-ring bridle away from the vibrating end. This will also make the drone tune lower.
-If the reed double tones, it is too strong for your set up. To decrease the strength, move the o-ring bridle towards the vibrating end. This will also make the drone tune higher.
-If you have noticed a change in your reeds' performance, check your canister connections and any ash plugs or valves that you are using. If they are in good condition, there may be something built up under the reed tongues. You can run a business card or folded dollar bill under the tongue to try to clean out any seasoning that may have built up. You can also clean the tongues in warm soapy water, just make sure you re-install them correctly.

Jock was traveling by train seated next to a stern-faced clergyman. As Jock pulled out a bottle of whisky from his pocket the clergyman glared and said reprovingly, "Look here, I am sixty-five and I have never tasted whisky in my life!"
"Dinna worry, Minister," smiled Jock, pouring himself a dram. "There's no risk of you starting now!"
