When you are doing only fine tuning a single grade is fine. When setting up
a plate from scratch and maybe taking a reed a semitone or tone away from
it's natural pitch I uses a coarser grit paper. I use the finer paper to
get a better finish finally.
BTW, I always wash the reed plates before doing final checking in order to
get all grit and brass dust off the reeds... can make a difference to the
tuning. Then into the washer again to stop customer from catching all of
the nasties I have accumulated over the years :))
