Notemaker Posted February 15 Share Posted February 15 (edited) Have a couple of newish naughty steel reeds still wearing in. One, RHS push E is making an extra sound as well as the fundamental. It's like a metal pot scrape sound. Hopefully can share my MP3 of it here. The second one is the C# push on the RHS outside row. In each case included a sample of the draw E, C# to compare. In fairness to my little MP3 recorder, it doesn't quite get the full effect of the extra sound. Removed the E reed, tested on a bench blower; it does the same thing outside the instrument. Did not do that to other because it appears to be the same thing. On inspection of the E reed and shoe, it looks slightly off to one side, that is, on the long edges, the gap between frame and tongue looks to be off. A few years ago reset a reed tongue in its shoe and I hesitate to do it again. Since the reed developed its naughty habits after some time playing in, I suspect it moved in the frame over time. Any suggestions welcome. 230214_001.mp3 230214_002.mp3 Edited February 16 by Notemaker error Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
