David's Tip of the Day: Harmonica Service Workshops

David Barrett Admin's picture

The chromatic harmonica has more moving parts than a diatonic (slide assembly, wind savers, etc.) and is more prone to needing adjustment now and again. If a reed goes bad on a diatonic harmonica we commonly weigh the cost of sending it out for repair, taking the time to learn how to repair them for ourselves or just buying a new one. Chromatic harmonicas are more of an investment and most chromatic players I know do their own repairs (unlike diatonic players... though more are doing it these days). If you go to http://us.playhohner.com/media/ and only check "Hohner Videos" you'll find an extensive series of lessons on maintaining and repairing your chromatic harmonica.
