  What happened was, I dropped my Marine Band in the tub. Proceeded to slap
all the water out of it and noticed when I played it, the sound was
Kinda loud and "quivery". I figured that it was the minute amount of water
on the reeds.
  In later yrs I took to placing my harps in Cold water just before
playing. On nights when I was REALLY flush, I used Iced Vodka. Rum wasn't
any good because it got sticky.

  The combs would swell a little but I would sand all 4 corners of all the
"webs" with an emery board. My mother never understood what happened to all
the emery boards. My 2 older sisters got the blame.
  But, good for em, they got an allowance, and I didn't..............smo-joe
