    Related to Ofir’s question in his thread, I have a question on gapping.

    I am not an expert tuner. In fact I have yet to tune even one of my melodicas. I have, however, tried adjusting the reed gap on several melodicas. When I do this, I find the tuning changes. It puts my melodicas out of tune.

    Unless I am gapping incorrectly, I think gapping and tuning are related to each other.

    Question: Should I be able to adjust reed gap to my heart’s content and expect the tuning to remain unchanged? If so, what the correct reed gapping technique that prevents detuning of the reeds?

    Regards,

    Lowboy
