RE: [Harp-L] Harmonica Tuning Sequence

I have not done embossing, but no matter how careful I am during tuning it affects the gap. ÂI would tune first and reset gaps last In case other operations chage the gap.

Subject: [Harp-L] Harmonica Tuning Sequence 

I am going to attempt customizing & tuning my own harmonicas (Seydel 1847, Hohner Special 20, & Bushman Delta Frost) for playing mostly Blues. I have the Lee Oskar tool kit, the Rupert Oysler DVD's, the Harmonica Einstein's Tuning Table and the Seydel Setup Pack. I am ready to start practicing on an old Hohner. Is there a particular order to follow for tuning, setting the offset & curvature and finally embossing? In other words, should I set the offset and curvature first and then tune and finally emboss? Any help or advise would be appreciated.
