Topic: Gouger and shaper tip match....
I have been doing a lot of reading and experimenting lately as I have been in a reed rut for oh....4 months
A statement about "the shaper tip needs to be a good match for the gouge" keeps cropping up in my reading. I'm curious what shaper tip everyone finds success with for a Driscol Opus 1 gouger. What shape do you find matches it best?
This may be an arbitrary question... It just seems to be popping up a lot in my reading and I thought I would ask. I know there are many other factors at play.
