Topic: bassoon reed cane source marking question
I always mark a diacritical mark of some sort between the first and second wires since I use various cane growers and it helps.
the diacritical mark is always difference for each cane grower.
I do this when I make reeds,blanks, or just marking profiled cane for reference.
Does anybody think that the marking done with an equalling needle file( one to four small filings)would effect in any way how a reed works?I only do this on one of the sides, not both.
I'm just thinking about it.
