    Before I potentially mangle these expensive harps, do people snip or =
remove these valve stoppers and if so will it damage my harps.

  You may find that the low notes seem wheezy and unresponsive with the =
valves removed.  This is because the other reed in the chamber moves =
away from its slot and leaves quite a large opening for leakage.=20

  Except for the task of replacing the valves you have removed if you =
don't like the result, no permanent damage is done .
