[Harp-L] New chromatic help

Happy New Year to all you harpers out there.

I got my first chromatic for Christmas; a Hohner CX12. I am having trouble with draw 8 and 9.
Using my usual tongue blocking technique, I can't get any sound out of them. If I use a pucker
embouchure, I can get some sound out of them, but not as loud as I think they should be. I'm
thinking the difference is the variation in air flow between the two techniques.

Is this something that can be easily fixed by myself, or should I send the harp back for replacement?

Thanks for any advice.
