Re: [Harp-L] Seydel & Reed Failure
I read your link, Greg, and I get the idea. But here we are talking about a number of people who have experienced extremely premature reed failure, not failure due to a massive number of reed vibrations under the belt over months or years. My problem is that I now have two session steel low Ds, one with a busted 7-blow and another that had a busted 7-blow that Ben fixed for me. I still have some old low D Sp20s that are great workhorses, and you know how long it is since you could buy them. They rarely go bust on me. But those two session steels never come out with me. Why? Because I know I can't trust them, that's why. Other people may have different experiences to tell of. But that's mine, and I can assure you that I'm no harp-wrecking novice.
