I agree that Blu-Tack works great, is a lot easier to work with than solder, and very durable. And as per the comment above, if you don't like the results, it's easy to scrape the Blu-Tack off and return the harp to its original condition.

I only wish there was something that made it as easy to raise the pitch of a reed.
