I have a chromatic harmonica a hohner chromonica 12 hole and some of the reeds are a bit duff and squeak or dont work when i play. what can i do to repair it or who can i see in the devon/ cornwall area...


Sounds like you need to flush teh unit out as it has contamination. You might try using mild detergent and DE-IONIZED water.
I would first search google for "cleaning harmonica" for suggestions. You need to clean the reeds and NOT leave any residue. DE_IONIZED water should not promote rust or corrosion if dried quickly after cleaning and rinsing. I would lube the slides with CRC226 available in the electrical dept of Home Depot.

E note and e Sharp on a Super 64 Chromatic sticks. Dipping into warm water and temporarily bending the reed does not help.


You MIGHT try spraying a bit of CRC226 on it. This is available at Home Depot in the electrical department in a spray can fpor about $2.70. This is a VERY light silicone and displaces water. The product is also good to free up rusted pliiers and also good for electrical contacts and noisy volume control pots.

Larry adler hohner chromatic 12 harmonica needs re tuning or new reedplates, any advice welcome.


Probably just needs cleaning. Search google for cleaning instructions. Dirt or deposits on the reeds increases the mass and will cause them to go flat in pitch.

Recently I bought 12 hole Hohner chromatic. First


I would be tempted to try spraying CRC226 into the harmonica. It is available at Home Depot in the electrical department, usually near the electrical tape in a blue can about $2.70. It is plastic safe and is a water displacer and a very LIGHT lubricator. If there is crud in there it may dislodge it. It also is good at preventing rust and freeing rusty pliers, etc.
