I haven't tried either of those fixes. But something often comes to my mind when I read threads (they have been countless here over the years) about salvaging damaged or poor quality reeds. I wonder why people want to practice on reeds that aren't good enough to play in public. What is a "practice reed?" I want reeds that sound good and respond well whether I'm practicing or performing. Who wants to practice on a reed that you have to fight with? :)
