Five Minute Reedmaker: U vs. W

A student asked me as we were making reeds together whether I use a U or a W scrape.  I didn’t immediately know the answer, so I quickly ran the experiment and discovered that it makes a BIG difference!

Today I’m going to talk about this distinction – which was not one I’d given any thought to before it solved my own problem this past month.

UPDATE: I was asked for a quick video demonstrating this technique more thoroughly, and it is HERE.  Thanks for the request, Sameer!

Here’s the YouTube playlist with all of my other Five Minute Reedmaker videos.  You could subscribe right there if you wanted to – I’m dropping a video each week until the end of the year.
