Michael Marino Posted September 28, 2010 Share Posted September 28, 2010 This question is directed at those who make traditional instruments. I need to find the equation for the shape of reeds in a concertina. Most importantly for the curve/taper that is found in the edges of concertina reeds. I am not currently interested in making traditional instruments though I have the ability to cut shoes now. What my interest is the formula; as I am doing some work on another member of the free reed family (harmonicas) and wish to further the testing I am doing with tapered reeds in harmonicas. As this allows for a longer reed for a given note and in the upper end of the register would make a reed that was much easier to sound. I thank all for any help in this and hope everyone is having a great year. Michael Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
