Re: Out of the Box
I've rarely found a harmonica that doesn't play well out of the box, unless
it was maladjusted or otherwise defective. This even includes the <$2
Walmart diatonic harps. I haven't played Marine Bands in years, but when I
did, I played 'em hard right out of the box, and they worked just fine. The
reason I break mine in is because I find they last me several times longer.
Exactly how much, I couldn't say, but it's enough to really notice.
One fellow who told me that he sets up his harps and works the reeds a lot
says that he doesn't notice this. I wonder if working the reeds counts
toward "breaking in".
BTW some LIVE tunes by The IronMan Curtis Band:
