  • The Moisture Tube

    $ 70.00$ 120.00
    When hot air is blown into a pipe bag, it comes into contact with any restriction or obstacle which then causes the hotter air to condense.  This light weight tube is made from purpose built components and is designed to restrict the air flow making more condensation and cooling down the air before it reaches the reeds.  It is possible to adjust how much restriction (and therefore condensation) you want or need.  Great for all the wet blowers...

  • Bottle Trap

    $ 30.00
    Highland Reeds Bottle Trap is a moisture system that connects to the blow pipe stock.  It is absolutely vital you should have something going from the bottom of the blow stock to the back of the bag.  It’s a must. The Bottle Trap is an inexpensive and very effective moisture control product for use with a zipper pipe bag. Air passes along the length of the tubing and into the bottle which has a moisture absorbing cloth. Air holes in the bottle allow dry air to pass into the pipe bag.  Remove the Chamonix cloth from the bottle and allow it to dry out after playing and you can easily re-insert the cloth into the bottle once dry. Replacement bottles and cloths are available.
