Re: [Harp-L] Re: New harp setup service (was D harps)
I appreciate that Steve, and wasn't talking to you specifically. I wanted to put the word out for players with issues like you're having, that's all. The point is that I'm offering high quality but budget friendly reedwork, as an affordable option to make your D harp play great, including the 3 draw bends.

> Joe, I have one of your custom harps and I know how,good your work is. This is just a hobby for me and I wouldn't expect you to waste your time trying to explain to me what you do. I'm just hoping to make a D that I like, for a change.

I'm looking forward to helping more players with what they need and can afford. But that's a two way street. I ask that you chose a service from my menu, and just do it. You'll be happy. I only earn money when my hands are on a harp, and can't afford to chat about it unless something isn't clearly explained.
>> New sp20's make for very fine playing harmonicas when the problems are fixed, and reeds properly set up. The stock comb works great and definitely isn't degrading your 3 draw.
