Dymondwood 270 Comb
Prototype Features custom machined brass threaded inserts for both
reed plate screws and mouthpiece screws for longevity of the
instrument, and mosaic inlay in the back of the comb. This was done as
an experiment and never developed into an item that I sold. The problem
was with obtaining dymondwood in thicknesses that were suitable for
chromatic combs. To Make this comb I had to laminate two thinner pieces
of the material but this led to potential delamination over time.
Recently the factory that produces dymondwood was destroyed by a fire
making dymondwood harder to get these days. However if and when it
becomes available again this may be something that I revisit.
