with my new instrument I'm experiencing several reed shoes which are firmly stuck in the wood (fortunately all push reeds as yet), unpossible to remove by simply increasing the pressure of a finger pushing). Would it be advisable to cautiously apply a shove with a hammer (through a wooden chisel of course) to the clamp?
(at the moment there's one reed that turns squeaky from time to time, difficult to fix, my assumtion is that the brass reed shoe is suffering from the too-tight fit, being compressed perhaps)
Thanks in advance for your replies.
Best wishes - Wolf
