Super Glue Reed Fix Brought Back my Back D

Post by bobkeenan » Tue Feb 26, 2013 6:00 pm

I wrote another post on my blog about how I over sanded AND then cracked my reed (that I made). It ruined the Back D. But applying some super glue brought it back.

Note that I am a beginner. This we reed #6 for me.

While I had read about fixing a crack with super glue it did not occur to me what the effects of a crack might be and how some glue might fix it.
