Here’s more product info from the Selbie Reeds website:

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 our 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 ino the pipe 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 despatch, 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.
