 Re: Adjusting a Legere reed

I've used an emery board on Legere' reeds with great success but I do not get close to the very tip. However, I use my ATG to make a slight adjustment correct an imbalance.

I am primarily playing bass now and have found some of the tips from David Lowenstern as to where to sand and not sand very helpful. The video below gets very interesting about the 5:00 min. mark.

Here is the link

I keep about three reeds in rotation and surprisingly, I never know until warming up which one will be the best. I put different colored marks on the butt end to keep things in order on my rotation through my reed holders.
