    How to determine if reeds are good or bad

    All how do you check your reeds to see if they are good? I was told to push up on them from underneath and let them snap back to their original position if they make and pop noise when they hit returning to the closed position they are tight if not then they are worn. Any truth to this? I donít see any visible cracks or chips.

    If they are not chipped, broken, and don't have any gaps between the reeds and cages....yes they are gtg.
