 Re: Shortening the Stable
Author: Wes

We face the situation of too flat reeds, but we can't make them too short. I try to keep them 70 mm long or a bit more. To raise the pitch some, one can use a narrower shape, such as an RDG 1 instead of an RDG -2, which I normally use for a Loree reed. One can also slightly scrape the sides of the reed with a single edged razor blade from the thread on up to raise the pitch a bit.

To minimize the common instability or raised pitch of E2, one can scrape the windows longer or deeper, trying to keep the hump fairly thick. Thinning the hump can also make E2 more stable, but could lower the general pitch.

Since I usually reuse staples many times, I would rather not shorten them but you are apparently having some success in making them shorter. Good luck!
