    Reed stop question's moved to performance

    I posted this in performance as well.. more members read this area.. Reed Stop question's ReedStop's... we update our reeds to better setup's ...What about a better set of stops?? My question is there an ideal stop to use,and/or, what would different styles do?....(Having gone to a better reed setup myself ,I've replaced the gp 760 with the 1200's, using the Riva's spacer to pull them way from turbulance and to put them more inline with the port opening.)I have a number of different styles of stops to try .. shorty, just past the center of the reed body ,mid length (gp760's) with a curved end stopper, and long, with an curved end stopper(gp1200's)I have a few more gp1200's, that have more metal removed from the center of the stop...IMT, to help to blow the reed's closed.I also have some with the whole stop bent in a different curve...2nd... Is there any Ideal setting to these stops? What would bent open more do as compaired to being bent closed ?What does a spacer then do if put under the stop?? ( IMT, it will let the reed open more,giving more power ,but will hurt responce???) ANYONE EXPERIMENTED OR HAVE SOME GOOD READING ON THIS SUBJECT??p.s. did find one little thread on replyed to on Riva by Pistonwash that says use the long stops as they give the reed more stabiliy, less flutter... Ido remember seeing something on this especially the need for the back opening ...somewhere
