I love Copenhagen.  I visited there in '85 and again in '86.  I'd
like to go back some time.

I had heard that new Marine Bands were being made repairable now,
too.  If the sound of those has deteriorated as well, there will
be some very unhappy harp players.

Now that Hohner seems to be copying Lee Oskar, why don't you try
one of Oskar's harps?  I've been playing them for three years,
and I like their consistency.  They aren't perfect, but what is?
They are made by Tombo in Japan, and might be more easily found
in Denmark under that name.  If you would like a mail order source
