Did you have to change the size of the place where to put the reed in comparison with the Yamaha’s reed plate?

Yes, I learned 3D design originally from reconstructing a Yamaha P37D. I actually lost that file! But this one was based on the same principle, but has different dimensions everywhere. I think I kept the key size exactly the same. I actually wanted to see what the P37 would sound like with single reeds, and tried some modification experiments, and couldn’t get it to work. This one has different reed chamber sizes, and a place to put a steel rod (like the Hohner Pro 36), some guides for the keys etc

Looks and sounds fantastic, let me know if you fancy taking commissions!

Thanks Conner, I’d love to start making them, but they just take too long!
