If you determine that the flat bottom of a dry reed is warped (by rubbing
it on paper, etc.), and you sand the back to the point where it is again
flat, then you wet it and put it on the mouthpiece, doesn't wetting it
simply cause it to warp again? Stated another way, aren't one's chances of
playing with a flat reed just as good by skipping the sanding?
Well, it is Monday morning.
