Ironic that you caught this on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, a PBS kids show...and Wm. Kratt's grandsons Chris and Martin Kratt also had shows on PBS. I remember watching Kratt's Creatures and Zoboomafoo when I was a kid.

Hi Rob

Do they still make their own reeds for the pitch pipes?

How did you learn about this company and its harmonica making history? Were
you strolling through Mr. Roger's neighborhood?
