Everett Posted September 18, 2021 Share Posted September 18, 2021 There seems to be interest in having a discussion of the methods of raising and lowering pitch. 6 hours ago, Richard Mellish said: Taking away material near the fixed end of a reed is of course the usual method of lowering the pitch, but it is irreversible. Where's the harm in adding a tiny dab of removable material near the tip? Something like superglue would be easier to remove than solder, and also lower density, so more amenable to fine adjustment. You've mentioned this in some other posts and looking to either raise or lower my Jeff duet an approximate semi-tone it seems like a good alternative to solder/scratch even if non traditional. The idea deserves it's own thread but a quick question; does adding material at the base of the reed raise the pitch? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
