Reeds susceptible to blockages

Recommended Posts

I have a Wheatstone Aeola EC and a Lachenal EC. It seems that one reed or another on the Wheatstone fails to sound nearly every week, whilst the Lachenal remains largely operational. Does anyone have any ideas why this might be so?


I had the Wheatstone re-tuned and re-padded last year by a reputable repairer, but is it feasible that this left microscopic detritus in the works?


Disclaimer: having watched a youtube of Simon Thoumire sucking/blowing a stuck reed I confess this is my preferred method....
