Thanks a lot for that vid, Dave. I like this method better than the
others I found on harp-l and the net.
What is the basis of the sealing you apply? Here in Germany we have
other brand names. I recently sealed a comb of an echo harp with a
linseed oil derivate but it went banana. Fortunately enough the
reedplates still fit and it isn't leaky at all, but the comb wood
protrudes about half a millimeter at the middle of the back of the harp.
Still playable, but I don't want this to happen to to the old lady.
I cleaned the mouthpiece and the covers today and removed the cobwebs
inside the holes (I'm glad I resisted the urge to play it instantly...)
and played it a little bit. All reeds seem to be OK, though some need a
bit of regapping and fine tuning. The majority of the original leather
windsavers work fine, but some need to be worked on.
I like the sound of this harmonica. It's nice, warm and mellow. Much
more pleasant than the sound of my 270 which I got new in the late 80s.
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship...
Grüße aus Deutschland,
Ralf (who fell in love with a lady maybe twice his age)
