Hohner has an "Amadeus" that Farrell lists.  It goes for about the same or
a bit more if I'm not mistaken :-)    I think it has a clear plastic comb
(could be wrong), and presumed it was a higher grade than ABS plastic.
Some wood combs probably end up being air tight (part of that "something
good"), but a thin bead of silicone sealer between the reed plate and the
comb that Dick G and Chris M like to do (and Filisko?) seems like a natural
enhancement for wood combed harps, or even for plastic (refer to Chris's
post of a week or so ago). No doubt wood sounds different than plastic
Any more on the "boing" harp comb???

Carmex lip balm is a Minnesota winter lip necessity.  Works for me.
