Suggested cane size for David Williams D bass drone?

Post by dirk the piper » Mon Dec 02, 2013 7:39 pm

I get to restore a 3/4 concert pitch set made by David Williams, and everything's going pretty well so far. However, I was a little surprised that the bass drone reeds that work for some other concert sets don't fit this set very well. Could someone who has experience with Williams drones please share some info on the dimensions and behavior of the bass drone reed? Thanks!
