Tone Enhancers offer help with common problems of unsteady blowing and holding a constant tone in the drones by preventing excess moisture reaching the drone reeds. Each Tone Enhancer contains a small amount of desiccant to draw moisture from air leaving the pipe bag through the drones. Tone enhancers are simple and quick to install and remove, and they require very little space.
Shepherd Tone Enhancers Allow for:
Efficient Air Flow
Improved Tonal Stability
Better strike-ins and sharper cut-outs
Non-intrusive moisture control
Refill kit available separately
Tone Enhancers are "another innovation from RT Shepherd and Sons (Scotland) Ltd., developed in partnership with Robert Mathieson, Pipe Major of House of Edgar Shotts and Dykehead. Tone enhancers proved to be an immediate and outstanding success allowing players to maintain a tighter pipe bag with less air, as the main escape route of the drones were now filled with the tone enhancer which regulated the air and mositure leaving the bag."
Note: A zippered pipe bag is required for installation
