Re: [Harp-L] Re: Restoration

I just bought a pre-1940's Marine Band from Matthew Smart. He completely restored it and it is a great harmonica and a permanent fixture in my kit. It has super tone.

There's many fine harp technicians out there who do first-rate customizations. Who out there does, or can do, restorations on old stuff? I have a couple of old (1900 or so) harps (Wm Thie, Boehm) that could use the master's touch. No embossing or major retuning; nothing like that. Just removing the reedplates and giving them a good cleaning, reshaping a pressed in coverplate, etc. Everything - reedplates and coverplates are made of zinc (not corroded), by the way. The reeds are brass.

Any recommendation?
