Providing quality Seydel diatonic repairs at a fair price means I have to work quickly. Sorting, storing, and quickly locating reeds is one of the keys to get a reed replacement handled timely and getting the harmonica back on stage.
These containers were built by Michelle LeFree. Michelle is a manufacturing professional that is not only skilled at design work, but also able to build from those designs. Michelle is also a harmonica player so she knows the needs of the professional technician.
These reed storage trays are made from a 3D printer. Each one holds enough reeds for 2 slots (Holes) on a Seydel diatonic. There are 30 individual compartments for each slot and the individual reeds go into each compartment based on the labeled pitch.
I hire a sorter to take bulk Seydel reed orders and drop them in the corresponding compartments.
