 Re: Marigaux has buzzy half-hole?

My reply to you probably isn't timely, but here goes. I experience the half-hole buzz often when I am testing my reeds on student instruments. After making some adjustments, I have found that the half hole buzz disappears.

I use a pretty standard American Scrap with visible windows. Usually when this happens, It is because the heart area is in general too thick in proportion to either the windows and/or tip. Conversely, I could say that either the windows or heart are too thin in relation to the heart. Oddly, the reed often sounds amazing and seems to function great in every other way.

If you are still in the search for a new instrument, I recommend making several reeds specifically for the instrument you are most interested in.

I'd be very interested to hear what you ended up doing.
