Subj: Reeds. . . a general observation for your comments
Date: Mon, 16 May 1994 10:25:33 -0400

This is my experience also. I don't fuss with them anymore,
except for some light sanding on the bottom to ensure a good
seal against the mouthpiece.

-->Now that I am in my second career as an administrator in an academic library,
I
-->find I have no time to devote to reeds. I simply try out the reeds as they
come
-->from the box. I ENCOUNTER VIRTUALLY THE SAME RATIO OF USABLE REEDS VERSUS
-->UNUSUABLE REEDS THAT I EXPERIENCED WHEN I DEVOTED HOURS AND HOURS
-->TO WORKING ON THEM. THE BIG DIFFERENCE IS THAT I'VE GIVEN UP WORRYING ABOUT
-->THEM. And, it's my belief that since I no longer worry about them, I
-->concentrate simply on PLAYING THEM. To me, concentrating on PLAYING reeds
means
-->developing flexibility. I feel this has made a signifcant difference for me
-->in that I no longer need to find the reed that suits me; I can successfully
-->play reeds of differing characteristics.

-->Your comments, please!
