ST15.5M Double (Master) Reed Plate Tuning Table | MasterHarp

ST15.5 Master Reed Plate Tuning Table


The ST15.5M  Master table is a step into the future. This table allows you to tune one plate to another of the same key. It also functions as a single tuning table.

About the ST15.5M:

This is another quality product from the bottom up. The master table opens doors to some interesting possibilities, not the least of which is a better understanding of the relationship between two reed plates that have the same key.

Like all our other tables it is made from the finest materials including GL-2 Baltic Burch plywood, a material that is incredibly sturdy and acoustically fabulous.

For improved air flow across the reeds we have eliminated the slots in the base.

As with other ST15 models you will find two brass resonance tubes, brass alignment pins for easy access, and a more modular construction. In this version several improvements were made to internal acoustic features found in the ST14. 

All tables produced by Masterharp are designed and built to ensure consistent results.

Additional Features: 

The table has hardened stainless steel plate hold downs with precision adjustable shaft collars and keeper to help you manage tension adjustment. It all adds up to an easy way to insert and extract your reed plates for work off the table. Moving between your light source or work bench and the tuning table to finesse the reeds as you adjust will be a breeze.

It comes with one full slot 3MM (1/8th inch) silicone gasket (reed plates slide into position easily and seal completely under hold-down pressure). This gasket will accommodate most reed plates with 7.5 (Hohner) or 8.0 (Seydel) center to center spacing. A cascading gasket for Lee Oskar and Tombo plates, with their many holes, 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 is standard across the ST15 + series and accommodates most reed plates.

Also included here is a durable Norprene draw tube with two sliding anti-crimp springs, an ergonomic mouthpiece, adjustment wrenches, a few spare parts, stable five point base footing and a blank plate to block off the rear holes if you want to tune a single reed plate.

Use with Bellows:

The table will also function well with a bellows. Most bellows used for camping purposes have an adapter to suit the mouth piece. Using a bellows and a simple Hoffman (think science) clamp on the hose will aid you to achieve constant air flow if you are not a diaphragm breather. Using the bellows with the table is a great time and breath saver.
