Richard Mellish Posted January 15, 2022 Share Posted January 15, 2022 I find it reassuring that the vibration of a reed in use doesn't cause work hardening. It it did, that would presumably raise the Young's Modulus and therefore the pitch. Metal fatigue seems very plausible. Might it start from microscopic flaws in the edges of a reed, left from when it was cut to size? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
