Subject: Popping valves (Honer 270)
I have a Honer 270 chromatic harmonica that has been played heavily for
about 6 months. The problem I now have is that some of the valves are
sticking. This makes it difficult to play at low volume because the wind
savers need a fairly hefty blow/suck to make them pop open.
So what can I do?
1/ Throw away the harp and buy a new one (expensive).
2/ Get a professional harp repairer to fit new valves (might be nearly as
expensive as buying a new harmonica).
3/ Fix the valves myself (very tricky?).
Looking at the harp it appears not to be
designed to be repaired, the reed plates are nailed down to the
wooden body and half the valves are on the inside of the instrument
where you can't get at them easily. Also the valves themselves look so
Anybody who has played chromatic harp for any length of time must have had
the same problem. I would be very grateful for any comments or tips on
possible solutions to this.
