Some players like to tape the inside of their harmonica cover plates which
reduces the amount that the cover plates vibrate when the harp is being played.
I do not do this myself, as I really like my harmonica to vibrate as much as
possible in my hands, which seems to make the instrument more responsive. IMHO
the cover plates used, make a vast difference to the tone of the instrument.
I like to play harps with thin cover plates, such as the MS Blues Harp. Other
players prefer thicker cover plates, such as the MS Meisteklasse. When using
Hohner MS harps, I always fit them with Blues Harp cover plates which allows
them to vibrate freely.
