Some years ago, I had several 270 mouth pieces and cover plates re-plated
with silver. Also some of the old steel Hohner diatonic cover plates. It
wasn't cheap, but worked well for me and made the instruments much more
slippery and easier to play.
The people who did the work for me are no longer in business, but there
are plenty of plating firms out there....

So for me, it seems that the life span of Original Plating of the deluxe
270 round holed mouthpieces is about nine years.
More than a few are becoming rough, especially around the notes I actually
know, which, at some point, will become annoying, and I'll have to learn
Any suggestions for ways to replate them? Some tried and true method. What
would be really convenient would be to go to Home Depot and see a spray
can of stuff labeled "RePlating for Hohner Chromatic Harmonicas."
While the Universe seems to provide for most of my needs, it seems to have
fallen down on The Job with this one.
And yes, it'll be quite some time before I'll be able to truthfully say
"Oh, sorry, I missed that passage because my mouthpiece is just so rough and
I'm so delicate"....
But it would be nice to have one of those "Plan" things I've read about.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
I bet one of the horn-smashers in this group will know The Answer.
