Topic: socially acceptable reed
Greetings. I am a new (but erstwhile) IDRS member from Stirling in Scotland. I would like to know the best way to modify a reed so that it will play in a subdued, quiet way. We have recently semi-retired (I am a dentist) to an apartment and although I don't think the sound rattles through the building (which, by the way, was built in 1830 and has really thick walls) I would still like to be able to play out and not make too much noise.
I don't make my own reeds.
