 Re: New way of fastening reeds to staple.

I just watched the video....I probably won't be adopting the method.

Advantages:
- Allows you to take a well-made reed with the right opening but out of tune and replace it on another staple to make it play in tune.
- Possible vibrational aspects discussed on KGE website, http://shop.kge-doublereeds.com/

Disadvantages:
- Takes longer to assemble blank reed than with traditional thread.
- More delicate and looks like the cane can more easily shift around on the staple, especially while scraping.
- More expensive to make. Ligatures add $.60 per reed, and you need sealing tape as well. Ligatures are not reusable.
- Greater quantity of staples of different lengths required to keep in stock in order to make changes.
