I have had four SS reed failures. All were top end blow reeds with VERY
little playing time on the reeds, two on a Low E Session, two on an A
Silver. My experience on Hohner brass reeds with the same keys has been much
better. I believe the stiffer SSteel may have difficulty dealing with the
short reed pressed into a bend.

I was kind of surprised by the contributor who has had two Seydel Session
Steels commit suicide in short order. I have only ever succeeded in "doing
in" brass reeds. Maybe I am not attacking my harmonicas aggressively enough.
Since I bought my first Seydel 1847 with stainless steel reeds a fair few
years ago I have become a 'convert' to Seydel and stainless reeds. I expect
them to last forever - or at least long enough.
So far (touch wood and crossed fingers) I have been lucky.
