A highly refined synthetic drone reed made of carbon-fiber components. Great for solo competing, and super stable!
Full-bodied, mellow, super stable, NOT buzzy, locks together.
- Kinnaird reeds look a lot like a model rocket. They have an aerodynamic "nose cone," and inside of the cone is a screw that one can use to sharpen/flatten the overall pitch of the reed. This screw comes in handy if the drones are tuning a bit too high/low on your tuning pin.
- Kinnairds tend to "lock in" to tune with each other very well, and will stay this way for extended periods of time.
- This "Evolution" style Kinnaird Reed was redesigned in 2013, in attempts to improve the brightness and brilliance of the tenor reeds. (We agree - this is a step up from the original model when it comes to sound AND stability!)
- Replacement tongues are available for purchase, and can come in handy after several years of playing these reeds. After extended use, some feel that older tongues are less stable/tunable.
