Re: I want a xb40.
I was very unhappy with my XB-40, when I finally did get it. So, tonight,
I broke down and took it apart and gapped the draw reeds. It really only
needed the first five re-gapped. That improved it tremendously. I guess I should
have realized that if I need to do that with out-of-the-box Special 20s, this is
likely no different in that respect.
So now it's more playable and I seem to have figured out the blow bends on
the bottom end much better. Still, it's a challenge for me. When I had it
apart, I found the low draw reeds had what I felt were deep gouges in them from
the tuning process. Sure seems like this would weaken those reeds
