Re: What to seal combs with.

Bees wax is certainly a good advice too, from which I already have heard of.
Should be available in Ireland too.

Re: What to seal combs with.

You can seal the comb with walnut oil. Take only a little amount. Just rub it in with a soft cloth and take away the excess, leaving a thin coat. It is air-drying. It will not turn rancid. The drying time is about 1 week. Repeat the procedure every now and then. I think it must be to get in Ireland ...

Re: Comparison Lucky 13 to Seydel Solist Pro 12 Steel - Low Octave

Middle C is the C4 depicted on the layout sheet, and is Hole 1 on a regular C-harp and is also the C in the fourth hole (however it may be numbered) on both the Lucky 13 and the Solist Pro. Then I guess the following layout sheet should be correct now? http://thumbs.picr.de/29026625qr.jpg (click to...

Re: Reeds Attached with Screws

... try "super glue" to attach it. Much to my surprise, it actually worked and is still working weeks later. :o ... to my big surprise too ... You have a really Lucky one. :) But I'm quite sure, it fly fly away one time again. But if it's sounding well and is still in tune, you can repeat this oper...

Re: Reeds Attached with Screws

Oo, top of the jokers set - or ass card drawn, by other words. I don't envy you. The usual way is to drill out the screw - with a diameter not exceeding the core diameter of the screw. Then tetap the thread. I have done this many many times - with diameters of M 4, M5, M6, ... up to M16 or so. But I...

Re: Retuning a Hohner Vineta

Wow! Thanks for the info. It looks like maybe trying to find the Gm Dm Am version would make a nice complement to the one I have. Still interested in anyone's chord suggestions. At it's simplest, I suppose the question is this: If you have C, F, G and C7, G7, D7, what next 6 chords would you most l...

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...
