Topic: How to open the tip opening on a "finished" reed?
Sometimes there is a finished reed that is just fine, but the opening tends to collapse easily. Usually this goes along with a scrape that has already removed some cane. One of the typical 'rescue' steps is wire, however wire changes the ability to vibrate and the reed overall.
Are there any other ways to open up the tip a little bit? Where would one take cane off in order to open it more up?
