Ross Suede-Feel Zipper Pipe Bags with Canister System



Ross Suede-Feel Zipper Pipe Bag with Canister System  

The Ross bag has a suede-like, red exterior that offers some grip and makes the Ross bag more like a hyprid hide/synthetic pipe bag, with vibrance and harmonics to rival a sheepskin bag. The bag requires no seasoning and is virtually maintenance free; plus it's more hygienic and has a longer lifespan than most hide bags. Installation is easier than ever, with hoses that fit into the base of the stock with a simple twist. The system or any of its parts can be removed quickly, and hoses can be taken out for regular cleaning.  An extra canister is supplied, so you'll always have a dry canister at hand. Canisters contain specific chambers for the chanter and each drone, so you can regulate moisture to all reeds by adjusting the amount of drying agent in the chambers or by turning the colored tabs on the output lid, opening or closing the moist air inlet holes. The Ross system gives you the opportunity to make fine adjustments, so you can have a system that best suits your playing style.

Tips for Using the Canister System:
  • Adjust moisture level by removing or adding drying agent to any chamber
  • Remember, your chanter reed needs some moisture
  • Drier blowers can use without the chanter hose
  • Sieve the granules regularly to eliminate smallest particles
  • Vacuum out system and rinse hoses periodically to remove dust
  • Dry the granules after each use for maximum effectiveness
  • Drying agent can be put in the microwave on  plate, but the canister does not go in the microwave
  • A proper setup results in little restriction of airflow
Installation Tips:

If you use the clamp and sleeve to attach the chanter stock instead of trying it in, make sure not to overtighten the clamp, as that may damage a wood stock.


Because the Ross Canister System has extra components, pipes fitted with the system may require a roomier pipe case.
