Installing Boyesen reeds on Phazer- Is this normal?
Has anyone installed the Boyesen Dual-stage reeds before? I’m putting some on a Phazer II and I’m wondering if this is normal:
After tightening the reeds down, the bottom reeds don’t appear to be sealing completely against the reed cage. They are sitting slightly open; about a few thousands. The top reeds; however, appear to be sealing flat against the bottom reeds.
I have tried turning them over as the instructions suggested, but it didn't make any difference. That bottom reed sits slightly open either way.
I’m wondering if this is normal and will perform as they should, or do I have something else going on? My stock reeds and cages worked just fine and are in perfect shape. I’m just doing upgrades during its down time. I’ve read that the Boyesen reeds are highly recommended so I wanted to give them a try.
