Just to clarify (because I misread this at first) - have him practice reed adjustment on bad reeds first, not practice playing on bad reeds (to make him more appreciative of the good ones?).

Although, I think this needs to be modified a little in any case. "You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear" is a saying I've heard and read many times relating to reed adjustment. If the reed is completely unplayable at the start, your son will never know in the end, if several attempts to improve it are unsuccessful and the reed is still unplayable, whether he's ruined it or it was not a usable piece of cane in the first place. Some imperfections of grain can't be repaired or compensated for.

I'd start trying to work with reeds that can be played with some effort but not with a really satisfactory quality. The ones that seem hopeless probably are - just go on to the next one.
