Topic: Trouble slurring from Bs and Cs to the octave above.
I was wondering if anyone could lend some insight into why my reeds don't want to slur from a note which is pitched at 3rd space C or lower to a high B or C. It has proven to be a problem with my reeds and not my instrument.
I use 46mm Stevens tubes, #2 opening, and a Samson +1 shape. I tie at 72mm with the 46mm tubes. I scrape in a manner consistent with my training with James Caldwell, who used to say that his reeds were very similar to David Weber's reeds.
