I am not saying in particular that one type is better than the other; just maybe that it is one possibility? Yes, I think that is true. Higher quality reeds can be more prone to issues too because the gap between the tongue and the frame is really small, so it doesn't take much pressure to distort the frame enough to cause it to interfere with the tongue. Also solid wood reed pans are more humidity sensitive than the plywood construction you often find in cheaper instruments. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
