Anyone here using the V-3 dryer system in their bag?

Any comments on it?

I used to use it - before I switched to sheepskin.

It thought it did the job quite well. To use, inserted tubes into drone stocks and twist on the canister. So long as you take the canister out every time, I found I never had to microwave it. You don't have to blow through it either to remove dust or stuff like that.

Valves seemed to quieten the drones a bit, but obviously made for easier cutoffs.

thanks for that. I'm not wanting to switch from the sheepskin but its hard for me these days with the kid to maintain it. Also don't want anything to impede the sound of my Hendersons.

I'd avoid it if I'm honest.

Use something without the valves - like Ross or Bannatyne.

yeah, I didn't know about the valves in it. My playing time has been cut super short so I think Im gonna put the Bannatyne back on for now.

Sucks a big one to lose the Sheepy but thats the way it is for the time being.
