The 'Beck Valve' was developed specifically for the Highland pipes. It is of the mushroom type, mounted on the base of blowpipe stock, using a tapered universal fitting that does away with the need for hemp.
The "Beck Valve" gives an excellent delivery of air, is not dependent on a back pressure for closure, eases blowing and keeps a constant controllable pressure on the reeds.
As the Beck Valve is not mounted on the blowpipe it's self then the blowpipe can be bored out a little, again easing blowing..

A proprietary water trap which will (according to Ian Sherwood) give you 1/3 -1/2 again before having to replace your 'Ross canister', comes with the "Beck Valve" and fits neatly on top of the "Beck Valve" protruding into the stock.
