Every day is reed work day
Every day is reed work day. I work on shaping reeds just about every day.
"True customizing always involves painstaking adjustment of reeds and reed plates; true custom harmonicas are like fine wine – they take time to make and very hard to come by, as demand far outstrips supply."
-HOHNER AFFILIATED CUSTOMIZERS, "What is customization?"
If I skip doing any reed work for a day or two, I get rusty.
If I have lots of reed work to do and it's just not working at that particular moment - like when my fingers won't cooperate with my brain - I make a cup of tea or work on something else and come back to it. You can't force it.
