As a Tabling Specialist at Steuer, my main responsibility is to handle the crucial process of tabling the cane segments. Tabling involves using specialized equipment to flatten the inner part of the reed, which will be in contact with the mouthpiece.
After the cane segments have been prepared by our skilled team, it's my role to ensure that each segment undergoes precise tabling. This process requires using a machine with three different-sized sanding discs to achieve the desired levels of flatness and smoothness. The tabling operation is critical, as it directly influences the sound quality of the reed.
