I've done a bit of tuning on diatonics. As I understand it, you file the base, or attatched end of the reed to flaten it and the tip or free end to sharpen. I gave this advise to someone and they applied it to a chromatic. He claims that filng the free end caused the reed to become flat...?
Is there a difference in how filing applies to chromatic/diatonic? Do I have the process backward? Or maybe He was filing the wrong reed...
