Neil Selbie Drone Reeds

Upgrade your bagpipe sound with Selbie Drone Reeds, one of the world’s top-selling bagpipe drone reeds, favored for their seamless integration and exceptional performance in both modern and vintage bagpipe models. Selbie Reeds offer a truly “plug and play” experience, requiring no adjustments to achieve maximum efficiency.

Key Features:

  • Redesigned bass reed for enhanced richness, fullness, and steadiness
  • Composite “imitation cane” reed body for authentic tonal qualities
  • Precision-engineered injection moulded tongues
  • Unique T-Joint for tongue attachment to the reed body
  • Locking tuning screws for secure adjustments
  • Transparent silicone bridles for effortless fine-tuning
  • Comprehensive instructions included
  • Bass reed is made from new light green material for enhanced stability and harmonics (new for 2023)

Selbie Imitation Cane Drone Reeds have been designed to provide the stability of a synthetic reed while providing the tonal qualities found in the finest cane reeds.

One of the main features of the Selbie reed is the patent-pending tongue system. The T shape formed tongued fits into the precision-engineered reed body. This eliminates the need to glue tongues to the body. It allows the tongue to be removed and cleaned of any residue or seasoning if a reed were to fall into the bagpipe bag. It can then be refitted to the reed body and set to its original position.

Our reeds have been developed to fit most makes of pipes. Black waxed hemp can be added to the rubber sleeve to ensure a secure fit.

Prior to dispatch, the reeds have been tested for pitch and strength, and are delivered with instructions on how to fine-tune the reed to obtain the perfect balance between chanter and drones.

The reeds are available with a standard bass or inverted bass reed.
