Hi, I have been playing Dunfion drones for two years now. I also had a lot of trouble with the drone reed situation, the Henderson Harmonics were a nightmare. I switched to Selbies, big difference, esp. in tone. Bass was still a tad finicky. I have subsequentley switched out the "normal" Selbie bass drone reed for an inverted Selbie bass drone reed. Lordie what a difference! Very steady, strike-ins are a dream, and I seldom if ever have to re-tune!! Very sweet tone, perfect in my mind for solo work. I have been using both a Dunfion poly chanter, with a Coel-Mor medium reed,(no tape necessary if reed is placed properly) and an older Hardie abw with an Apps, also a medium (tape on E and F). Currently looking for an old Sinclair. Don't give up on the Dunfions until you have given the Selbies with the inverted bass a try!
Good luck!

I agree with jwk, i also play dunfion drones with selbie reeds with inverted bass and they seldom need re-tuned, they sound absolute magnificent, i play with mccallum McC2 solo chanter with shepherd med reed and it is perfect.

Good Luck!!
