[Harp-L] Sticking reeds

Maybe the reeds are gapped too close and/or need cleaning... I would
clean the reed plates, and check the gaps.

I wouldn't do any filing unless the reed is out of tune.

I am playing quite a bit of harp again these days (YAY!) in our band The UnConcord and I often have this problem, especially on the G and C harps (probably because I used them more), usually hole 4 draws, but occasionally others, usually on draws. Am I blowing/drawing too hard? Do they need filing? Other suggestions welcome and TIA.
