In other conversations here some have mentioned the fact that they don't bother to take the reed off the sax when they are adjusting the bottom of the reed. I've been doing this with the reed geek and found that at least in theory, this is very useful. Because taking the reed on off is such a hassle, one tends to overdo the scraping. It is so easy to just srcape a tiny bit off, instantly play it and then scrape a bit more off unit you get what you want. Is there any downside to doing this? I realize that you don't have a hard flat surface under the reed, but it seems that with the geek you don't need it.
