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,
