Re: [Harp-L] end to end reeds

I think Brendan's creation was two harmonicas spliced end to end, but I'm wondering what would happen if two identical reeds shared the same slot, facing each other on their moving ends. Unlike those reeds that are located side by side in a common slot.  This configuration should permit four reeds within the same enlongated slot, two draw and two blow.

 Brendan Power created a
 custom built Hohner CX-16.  He cut two CX-12s (reed
 plates, combs, shell, and slide), and spliced
 them together.
