[Harp-L] Tuning the wrong reed- some tips

Hi All
I also have tuned the wrong reed. Any one can make that error, so don't feel too bad if you do that also.

Here are some tips that may help:
using a fine point indelible marker write the tuning pitch of each reed along side the reed slot concerned, the first time you open it up to set the instrument up the way you like it. If you don't do your own tuning & set-ups then don't take the cover plates off at all.

when tuning your reeds you may find that temporary holding the harp together using 'Bulldog clips 'at each end saves a lot of time when hearing the pitch of a reed with the cover plates on before finally reassembling.
