Re: [Harp-L] Question on Hohner 16 Hole Chromatics

Douglas was convinced of this aspect of solid silver or silver plated  
mouthpieces on harmonicas.
On Doug's suggestion I got some of my MS Blues Harp cover plates silver  
plated, and yes they DO glide smoother in the mouth. The down side is they  need 
regular cleaning with some kind of silver polish... Just like old fashioned  
silver knives and forks.
Also my ILUS Renaissance chromatic has the nicest smoothest mouthpiece  of 
any harp I've ever played, and that is heavily silver plated... But just  needs 
polishing regularly!
