I play XOs and my on the fly adjustment technique is to use a paper clip to adjust reeds- that way I don’t have to take the covers off. I also try to adjust gapping as much as I can at the base of the reed.
I like paperclips because I can attach it the the belt loop of my case, that way it is always with me
Who is this nut? First he tries to use a scrap of paper. When that doesn't work he comes up with a reed wrench and ends up over shooting the gap by a mile. All of the tweaks are happening off camera somewhere in his lap. I would have cringed but I was to busy laughing.
Seriously this how-to is pretty funky but it's the end results that count. I like this video because it is inspiring. Just take the covers off and go for it.
If things don't work out as planned call Adam. Just don't blame the man because he warned you not to try this at home.
Guerrilla Harp Tech techniques! Regap using a flat edged screw driver and piece of paper!
Nothing wrong with this type of approach.
I used to do a Guerrilla Piano Repair seminar for gigging solo pianists, showing how they can resolve most aggravating piano bar piano issues with a toothpick, folded paper napkin, cheap bar knife and other innocuous easily found materials... ---------- The Iceman
