Bagpipe Drone Reeds and Chanter Reeds

MG Range of Drone Reeds Chanter reeds and Small Pipe reeds

MG White Mambas or White carbons

New to the market after a year of trials, the MG white mambas, as they have been nicknamed, are proven winners. The introduction of the unique paddle shaped tenor tongues to our bagpipe reeds, give improved stability and strike in. In comparison to the original carbons, they are a little livelier, however they do not have the over buzz normally associated with carbon-tongued reeds.

In addition we have comprehensive set up and maintenance guides, which are available in the menus above and below this page.
