rlgph Posted February 6, 2015 Author Share Posted February 6, 2015 In the remote chance that someone is interested in testing this design, it occurred to me that there is an additional parameter that you can play with. In a conventional reed with the tongue bent upwards, the initial air flow is not simply around the end, but also around the sides of the tongue. In the design that i proposed air initially flows only around the end of the tongue, which as Lukasz suggested, would mean a lower volume of sound, depending on how big a notch is filed in the end of the frame. The amount of initial air flow (and thus volume of sound) can be increased in my design by filing the inside edges of the frames, not just at the ends, but along the sides as well. Whether one can get acceptably loud volume (and pleasing tonal quality) is a question that can best (probably only) be answered by trying the design out.
