I would think copper comb might turn your lips blue when wetted...isn't
that what copper does? Have never heard of a copper comb and don't think I'd
want to try it.

Isn't it wonderful the way the world holds both the deeply serious, and
the unexpectedly mirthful?

I don't miss the weight of metal combed harmonicas. Regarding the
sound, the reed work and the cover plate shapes are the large influence
on harmonica sounds. What was nice about metal combs is that they were
very flat and the reed plates mounted with no air leakage. There are
now other technologies that achieve similar air tight reed plate
mountings and they weigh less and also are less expensive.
I would think that copper might be vulnerable to distortion, it's quite
deformable and I'd also wonder about it's machine-ability. I've never
seen a copper comb. fjm
