Misc. 64x, Pete

    Welcome to Bob Williams, SPAH VP to the HARP-L list!!!!!
    Re: Noisy 64x slide
    	I have the same problem - seems to be fairly common with this model.
    	When you polish this is it a manual job or is it safe to do on a 
    machine? Considering how easy these parts bend.
    	Also, seems a light coating of Conn's Formula 3, (or any good, clear, 
    tasteless slide oil) would be worthwhile after all that polishing.
    Re: Pete Pedersen (Genius)
    	I have to reiterate this tale to illustrate just one example of this 
    guy's incredible talent. Buckeye Harmonica Festival 1992. That year we had 
    a competition. A "Winners Concert" was scheduled as the Saturday night 
    feature. Three first place acts were unable to perform due to illness or 
    other various reasons. We called on the judges (who were all pros, one 
    being Pete Pedersen). They all agreed to perform, but some were shaky 
    about playing without music. [Now this is after dinner on Saturday - 
    showtime is less than two hours away] - Pete got together with some of the 
    Judges in a back room and hammered out 3 arrangements in 20 minutes. This 
    was the foundation of what turned out to be a memorable show which - along 
    with the talent and cooperation of Don Les, Danny Wilson, Al Smith, Judy 
    Simpson, and Larry Stutz - saved the day!

    Ditto!!! Not to mention all kinds of seminars, including repair, and lots 
    of neat stuff in the SPAH store, and vendor tables. Clink! that's another 
    quarter hitting my SPAH jar.  ;-)

    >rid of?
    Chris, What's with the THB plates? Do they fit another harmonica, like a 
    270? I understand the reed plates are thicker and the reeds are longer.
    Are they superior to the 270 plates? Just curious - I have a Toot's Hard 
    Bopper on a Farrell Life Time Comb coming RSN - can't wait to try it.
