 Reed Crowing Obsessives...

Does it really matter if your reeds crow a high C, Bb or Z# for that matter?

So long as they work in the instrument is the defining factor in my opinion. I will crow my reeds to make a multiphonic and don't get fussed if they crow a specific note.

They may indeed make that precious high C, but once in the instrument they might not even play at all.

Since when do you play the reed on it's own anyway? If it doesn't work in the instrument, then adjust it or bin it and move on.

I also see similar things with clarinet players getting all obsessive about the note their mouthpiece/reed set-up makes. The tone generator will always work on its own, but you can't rely on that single factor to determine whether or not it's good until you can get the most out of it when it's in the instrument.
