Dunbar drones with different reeds

Per a request, I’ve recorded Donald MacLean’s Farewell to Oban 3 times, each with a different set of drone reeds: Ezee, Selbie, and Wygent. I’m facing away from the microphone so the drones can be heard more clearly. Tuning isn’t perfect as I didn’t have a whole lot of time to perfect the chanter and the drone reeds were being swapped in and out so I didn’t get to optimize them much either. For what it worth:
