Thanks Jeff, you are a god... or at the very least, a minor deity. :mrgreen:

I'll try to see if I can contact Davy to see if I can put up all of his reedmaking pages again.

That would be an excellent feature for this board. I was about to do the same.

If you talk to Davy, he is pretty straight forward about attributing his techniques to Mr. Hunter.

Hi,

http://www.canit.se/~chrisdav/reedadj.html
I thought these pages by a bassoon player would offer some help to those whose wish to see how other reeds (double) are treated to give the desired results for specific problem areas -- it offers some insight into how reeds operate and can be changed, in timbre and tuning.

Regards

luxod
