Re: The need for valves.

I think keeping the harp warm should help quite much. If you put it into your heating box when leaving the house, it should be prepared enough for playing and proper function of the valves, until you have reached your hill. But you should watch, that the temperatur in the heating box does not exceed...

Re: The need for valves.

Just try and remove them. In the case that you are not satisfied with the resukt, you can replace them again. Seydel offers sets of valves as a sparepart. You can even chose the improved ones, they have since new. http://www.seydel1847.de/epages/Seydel1847.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/Seydel/Categori...

Re: Bass Harmonica

I've made a couple of experimental harmonicas using low reed blocks from accordions, and they sound sweet. Getting blocks in the right note combinations to make a harmonica scale is a bit trickier, and they can be quite expensive. Thanks for the reminder - I've been meaning to revisit that idea in ...

Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

... that reed replacement requires dealing with the welded reeds, removing them, and creating a new combo of a tapped reed plate screw hole, and the new reed needs a clearance hole for a screw, or screw / nut combo.
