: Like a few of us I play during my commute. My 5 hole on my Special 20 was 'stuck'. I kept forgetting to clean it out. Well, I did a blow 5 and the reed came flying out! It was snapped at the rivet,straight across. This worries me bacause I don't want to draw a frigging reed down my trachea and choke to death from playing the harp. Is this common? And no I am conscience of not blowing hard when I play. Pretty nasty visual when I hold the sharp broken reed in my hand and think about chocking while driving my car!
