Clover Anglo Kit (Part 8) - Fine tuning the reeds

January 13, 14

I fine-tuned the reeds yesterday and today. It's a little difficult but very interesting.

First, I checked every reed's pitch using my tuner. Many reeds are too high.

Then, I began scratching 38 reeds whose pitch were too high or low. It took about 8 hours for me to scratch them all!
