[Harp-L] reed plate thickness

If thicker, or double reed plates are used, which causes the reeds to swing further, therby increasing volume, and shortening reed life, and it does this because the thicker reedplates distributes the screw more evenly, holding the reedplate flatter, then what happens when you bolt regular reedplates to a brass comb?  It would seem that the whole assembly suddenly becomes one large reedplate, with reeds mounted on each end.
Does the volume go up, and reed life go down because of the brass comb?
