Topic: Beveling and the fulcrum
I've been looking through this forum and have noticed beveling come up a couple of times. One of my old teachers mentioned it to me, but I never really understood what it was. So basically my questions come down to these:
1. What is the purpose of beveling?
2. Is it necessary, or does it really make a difference?
3. Where can I learn more about beveling?
4. What's this fulcrum of the reed that seems to be mentioned a lot with beveling?
Any answers or points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
