MT3 Moisture Tube with a new Filter Cloth:
The Moisture tube was already designed to remove moisture before entering the bag and now is fitted with HELIX 180 Filter Cloth which is the world’s most breathable, multi-functional air filter cloth designed to capture harmful particulate matter.
The HELIX.iso™ Filter, an innovative natural wool filter that harnesses the unique properties of New Zealand wool. With this filter in the MT3 you get a high level of protection from airborne viruses like Coronavirus. The wool used in the HELIX Filter Cloth is environmentally sustainable, naturally resistant to bacteria with excellent moisture wicking properties.
The HELIX 180 Filter Cloth used in the MT3 takes out 99% of particles and viruses larger than 0.3 microns and is made from natural Merino sheep wool.

In addition to filtering out viruses and particles, the clean air also results in more clarity in the overall sound of the instrument.
The MT3 system is produced with purposely designed and manufactured lightweight components. It comes with a spare cloth in a wash bag.
Your breath can range from about 70% to 96% humidity and on average is around 33˚C/91˚F. When blowing into your bag it condenses and produces moisture. When hot air meets any reflection or obstacle it causes the hotter air to condense. The built-in air reductions and the cloth in the cartridge results in the air cooling and condensing before being expelled throw the Helix Filter Cloth into the bag.
Fitting your bagpipe with a water trap is absolutely essential to reduce the amount of moisture getting to your reeds. It also reflexes your hot, moist breath to the back of the bag and away from your reeds. My Moisture Tube has been specifically designed as an effective, lightweight, moisture control system that works without the use of silica gels.
