Topic: Pitch on a 5K Heckel
I need some input:)
I've just had the pleasure of buying a 5K Heckel in beatiful condition.
The pitch in quite flat in general. Believe it or not but I'm working hard now to keep the low register sharp enough. I think I recall having read somewhere that these instruments where constructed for a pitch of 438?
The first thing I've done is to ream the reed more generously than I used to. I've also moved the first wire closer to the collar.
Does anyone else have experience with a situation like this?
