I've got a Pocket Pal also. Yes they are pretty simple to take apart,
if you have a very small screwdriver. That is what I do. I take the
covers off and see if something is jamming the reed (it only takes a
little bit of dirt or a hair or whatever).
If you can fix it by removing the case and cleaning it, I guess the
problem could be the reed itself. They were out after awhile.
Which takes me to a point on harps. I like the sound (for the price)
of the Suzuki Folk Masters, but I have one gripe. One or two of my
reeds is starting to go out on me (and it is not the fault of dirt or
myself) and I have only had the harp for two years (with actually
little wear and tear on that harp).
What I would like to know goes along with the question of which harp
is better: Which harps last longer? Do the ones that last longer
usually have better sounds?
Thanks all, and good luck with the "open harp surgery" Skip.
Ps- On the subject of names. Maybe by putting either our last name
or our computer user ID like I did. Just an idea.
