ST16S Single Reed Plate Tuning Table


This table is the lastest in the ST series and has a modular valve system for easy cleaning and valve tension adjustment.

The latest addition to the ST series...

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.

With this version we re-employed the full slot under the gasket partially, aboutt a MM worth. It still requires less work to sound the reeds as with the ST15 series which had no slot.

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

The guide is set with the valves aligned to the base on top of a thin teflon slip plate and rubber seal. This system allows you to remove it altogether for cleaning and to adjust tension / sealing of the valves. To accomodate the modular valve guide the base is about an inch wider than previous models.

Standard 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. To move between a light source or work bench and the tuning table to finesse the reeds as you adjust will be a breeze. 

A full slot 3MM (1/8th inch) fully cured red silicone gasket that slips on placement of reed plates and seals completely under hold pressure is included. It will accommodate most reed plates with 7.5 (Hohner) or 8.0 (Seydel) center to center spacing. For low tuned reeds you can stack a 1.5MM gasket on top.

A cascading slot gasket for Lee Oscar and Special 20s and thinner gaskets are also available.

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

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

Also included here 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 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.
