Re: [Harp-L] Double thickness reed plates? [getting long]

You know that reeds can reach through reed plate slots because of the noise they make as they strike the cover plates. Measuring any individual reed's travel would be more difficult. I would expect the louder claim is verifiable because it's not subtle. Do we all agree the XB's are louder? I'm speaking from direct experience here, I own a double plated harmonica. It breaks reeds and it's loud.

Apparently aligning the plates is no mean feat. When you think of all of the fussing that gets done on individual reeds and slots, you're multiplying by 2 with a double plated harmonica. So 40 precisely aligned slots with very small clearances.
