The Seán Reid Society Journals are worth ten times their money, get them if
you can! (NPU?) It's full of information you can't find anywhere else.
I was browsing volume one last night and read a article on R.L. O'Mealy
letters by Robbie Hannan again. There is an intriguing passage somewhere
stating that reeds will 'learn' how to play and how bad habits can spoil a
reed.

"......D the thumb hole is always in the first octave pressure of wind and
should never get more pressure no matter what the fingering or passage. When
going from, say (octave E) to back D learners are much inclined to give too
much pressure and doing so leads to spoiling the note (back D) and spoiling
the reed by giving it a bad habit....."

So you see, reedmaking is really about training your reeds properly:-)
