Re: Subject: Re: [Harp-L] comb material

The fact that there is debate, and that people don't take Vern's bet might be an indication that if there is a difference it is too slight to be noticed alongside other far more significant factors. Embrochure, control of a resonant cavity, etc. seem to make a much larger difference in the sound.

When I'm optimizing computer code I don't bother with things that yield small returns and go directly to areas where there is the most significant return for time spent (cost). If you can just push a harp farther into your mouth, drop your jaw, open your throat, move your tongue, etc. and make a profound difference in your tone, why worry about something that nobody can prove that a listener can hear?

Peace and music,
