Re: [Harp-L] Hohner customer service

When I was a kid, I had a Hohner Meisterklasse once. It was one of the old handmade ones. God, I wish I still had it. the old one was thing of beauty. Anyway, a four blow reed went out. So, I sent it off to Virginia to get a reed put in it. About four months later, I got a bill. The timing wasn't the issue, it was the charge. It cost more than 50 bucks for them to replace that one reed. The craziest part was shipping was $19. Who charges $19 to ship a harmonica first class? 
Otherwise, the folks in East Virginia were pretty nice.

certainly a good result, but not exactly the normal circumstance.
