Thread Name: How to play the 'Blues Harp'
Subject: RE: How to play the 'Blues Harp'
I would like to know if anyone has been successful at repairing stuck reeds. I have seen that a repair kit is offered by Lee Oskar, but having purchased several Oskars with the aim of replacing the reed plates when damaged, and then finding it nearly impossible to locate the replacement reed plates, I'm sceptical about the repair kits as well. I like the tone of the Hohners better, so I am using and disposing them. I've tried soaking the harps, but that only swells the wood so that it protrudes and hurts your mouth.
