Re: "Philadelphia" style reeds - HELP!
Could you please give the dimensions of your reed? My shorter reed is 53mm long, wire placements at 5mm, 16mm, and 25 mm from the butt with a 2 mm collar that leaves an average blade length from the collar to the tip of 26mm. I use a Fox #2 shape. The profile I use is thinner than the one for my longer reed that is 57 mm in overall length.
