Thanx, the question was just a try because it was talked about it here.
I will ask Bertram (I must call him anyway) or Arnd (the chief technician at Seydel's).
Or maybe I will contact Boris Plotnikov. He already did.

Details from his vid:

Especially the second pic looks very much like he has used scratch tool or electric grinder on the bottom end of the reeds only. But this was only one halftone anyway. I would not like to risk a soon come breaking of these very low reeds. They are oscillating enormously - even intensified by those heavy additional weights already at their default condition, and especially when played very hard and in staccato - just like I'm intending to do.

And that is the kind of stuff I want to play with it, here with my Seydel 1847 Low Tone LLE when I had it just new - and without any electronic effect gear, just pure acoustic amplification: :D

I hope Low Low D is not too far off topic from High D. :lol:

Thanks Brendan, that's what I figured but wanted to be sure. Plus I've seen the Youtube w/you doing the whole thing on the Suzuki and don't think they do custom setups (Drunken Landlady set). Great stuff.

I was just scared of doing that to those tiny reeds up there.

I will give it a go-what's the worst that can happen?!?

One bad thing that could happen, is that you might damage the one or the other reed and that you will need to replace them - with a Suzuki (or any other harp with welded reeds) this can be a delicate operation.

The worst thing that can happen - i.e. the most expensive damage, is that you will need to replace one or both of the reed plates.

Best thing to try it first on an old harp - preferably one which is scrap anyway - to train the skill.


good luck
