Re: Water Problems
My first harp was a Blues Harp, which I recommend to anyone as their
first harp. The reason people hate it so much (no longevity) is exactly
its virtue to a beginner (easy bending). Anyway, mine also had a tendency
to swell up past the lip and also swell at an angle to the reed, which
made playing tricky.
The Marine Band I have does the same thing, but not as quickly nor as
severly as the Blues Harp. I'm not sure if that is a systematic thing, or
I just got lucky with my particular Marine Band. People who use wooden
harps say they file the wood down as it swells up but I haven't resorted
to that yet.
