    I have this reed that works really, really well- except it plays E2 as Eb. It will play the E normally if I practically bend it in half with my teeth while playing, but obviously that isn’t the best workaround. Anyone have any ideas of where precisely to scrape to get this little beast to conform? I’ve tried scraping in a lot of places, but it’s getting to the point where further mis-scrapes are going to kill it. Thanks.
