I apologize for not knowing the brand that I have in my pipes but I would at least give a hearty 2 thumbs up for the benefit of drone valves.

I have had valves in my pipes for the past 5 years and they are fantastic. Instant improvement in starts and stops, as well as the tone with striking in. I can put so much more air in the bag before striking in without sounding the chanter.

Great idea getting them, again sorry I can't endorse a particular type. I bought mine on recommendation of the British Shop.
