ST15 Single Reed Plate Tuning Table


Again, a quality product from the bottom up, built to last, built to provide a lifetime of precision tuning!

We continue to use the best materials we can find, EU GL-2 plywood, incredibly sturdy where it needs to be, acoustically fabulous where it needs to be.

Air flow is more directed on this table than the ST14 series as we eliminated the slots in the base. We think this makes the reed plates more responsive to the drawn pressure and therefore requires less work to sound the reeds. 

In this new version of the tuning table you will find brass valves and pulls, two resonance tubes, brass alignment pins for easy access, and a more modular constuction.

In addition to the the resonance tubes other improvements were made to internal acoustic features. It is quite a change over the already great acoustics of the ST14. It remains a highly engineered acoustic construction with great thought and craftsmanship in every detail. The tone of this table is excellent.

The two extra valves on the outside are a nice feature if you want a little more mechanical control over air flow past the low reed. These valves will not be included in future models.

Over all it is truly a musical instrument in and of itself.

Additional Features: 

Hardened stainless steel reed plate hold downs each with a precision adjustable shaft collar and  keeper to aid 'on the fly' tension adjustment. It all adds up to an easy way to insert and extract your reed plates for work off the table. This system is fast so if you want to move between a light source and the tuning table to finesse the reeds as you adjust it will be a breeze.

A full slot 3MM (1/8th inch) silicone gasket (reed plate slides into position easily, seals under hold-down pressure)  that will accommodate most reed plates with 7.5 (Hohner) or 8.0 (Seydel) center to center spacing. If you want more room under the reed you can stack another gasket on top. We make both 3 and 1.5MM thick gaskets. 

A cascading slot gasket for Lee Oscar and Special 20s is also available.

Fully modular, it can be disassembled for transportation and shipping and quickly reassembled for tuning on the road.

A full array of reed plate alignment possibilities that will accommodate most reed plates.

Also included is a durable Norprene draw tube with two sliding anti-crimp springs, an ergonomic mouthpiece, adjustment wrenches, a few spare parts and stable five point base footing.

Use with Bellows:

The table functions well with a bellows. Most bellows used for camping  purposes have an adapter that works with the intake hose. In fact using a bellows and a simple Hoffman clamp (think science) on the hose will aid you greatly in achieving constant air flow if you are not a diaphragm breather. Using a bellows is a great time and breath saver.
