I have a Williams D bass drone here for reeding and minor repair.
I have tried several reeds in it, both composit and cane - and all work poorly. I have tested all the reeds in a few other bass drones and they all work and can be tuned in. All the reeds played quite and flat in the Williams bass - the best was a C#.
Williams was a very good maker, considered the best by some.
Are there exact mesurements for Williams 'D' bass drones reeds?
There does not seem to be any obstructions in the bore, but it seems to have a lower air flow through it !
Any Williams owners out there, please comment.
