Topic: English horn reed staples
I'm going to be playing some English horn (something I normally leave to the experts) next weekend and thought I would maybe try to make some reeds to have in addition to the ones I'm getting from a commercial supplier. I'll probably be using a Lickman bocal, and was wondering what opinions you guys might have about reed tubes.. which ones you prefer. Is the fit to the bocal an issue? If so, would anyone happen to have an opinion on which staples might fit a Lickman bocal best?
