Hi All,
Can someone tell me how to properly adjust the reed to get a better sound out of a bulb brass horn?
Thanks

Have seen it done with a cut tapered match stick by this expert who did it before, and results were a good bass deep sounding honk. Wood stick placed at right spot to slightly bend the reed, but you have to know how! Too much wrecks the reed permanently :-(

For reading, this old review off Google books gives expert advise, but not for the timid, as this author says to have a good spare reed before adjusting the one in the horn!
