Very Small Reeds

Recommended Posts

Scroll down to the end of this link and you will see some very interesting and very small reeds.

The accompanying videos by Philharmonicas demonstrate the quality of the reeds.

 

I am curious if concertina makers think that such reeds deserve consideration for use in possibly piccolo concertinas, or otherwise ?!?!

I was thinking about harmonica reeds as well the other day; I saw an octave-tuned (two holes per note, sounding one octave apart) "echo" hohner concertina, and was amazed by its lowest sounding reed : the same low E I have on my stagi anglo (which sounds one octave lower than most concertinas I believe). To hear that note played on such a small instrument made me wonder if these reeds could be used on a concertina - would it be possible to design small instruments with a great range using them?

Are the small reeds any smaller than those at the dog whistle end of a Wheatstone extended treble EC..?
