I have just bought a 1980 Hawk. But i am having trouble tuning it. it is also the pick-ups are really sensitive. It picks up every touch on the guitar. Putting your finger on a string sounds like a drum...

Your guitar Needs to be setup properly, tuning is tough need to wrap strings around tuner peg properly to stay in tune, and the pickups may need to be adjust farther away from the strings?
there are Tons of videos on YouTube showing basic guitar setup,
hope this helps?

I was wondering if it is normal that my piano down-tunes while I am playing.

No, it's not normal.To determine if it's a setting glitch or a hardware problem, perform a factory reset and see if the problem continues. If it does, it's a hardware problem and needs to go to the shop. Here's the reset instructions-

Several of the reeds stick, producing no sound until suddenly the reed pops and the note plays (although not always with the correct tone). This problem usually doesn't occur until I play the note...

First and foremost i recommend you take your harmonica to a professional for repair. But the problem can be many things that you can fix with a little patience. FIrst youll need to open up your harmonica and look at the condition of the reeds(the plate with the slits.) If they are rusted or warped they have been poorly maintained as water will rust the metal(saliva.) Sometimes simple sanding solves this problem though it seems thats not your problem. Usually the reed is misaligned due to excessive use and a professional would fix this with an index card sliding it very slowly under each tip of the reed attempting to level out the small piece of metal. Your attempting to realign the reed with the entire board. To see if your fix has worked you can blow into the reed and see if a smooth vibration comes out. Any more complex solutions would honestly show that its time for either a new reed plate or a new harmonica. For future reference make sure to get all saliva out of your harmonica when done playing it and keeping it in its case. Good luck

I have several Kratt F to F pitch pipes that are out of tune in one or more notes. Can they be fixed. or can the tuning plate inside be replaced.

First try cleaning them. If there is contamination on the reeds it will lower the pitch. Clean the plate with 99% isoprophyl alcholol. Do not use chemicals such as brasso as they will etch the plate and change the pitch.

How do you assemble a clarinet , i have a clarinet and cant assemble the mouth piece

First you need to have the barrel inserted in the top joint of the clarinet. It is the cylinder with no keys. I recommend putting the reed on the mouthpiece before you insert the end of the mouthpiece in the barrel. Some cork grease (a small amount rubbed on the cork will help it slide in easier. If it is too loose you will need it to be recorked but you might get away with wrapping a strip of paper over the cork as a temporary fix. The reed should be on the bottom looking down the clarinet when it is assembled. Make sure you have a reed that is the correct strength for you. A 2 is a good starter. looking at the squarish hole that the reed covers slide the ligature(looks kind of like a hose clamp, is metal with usually two screws to tighten) over the mothpiece with the screws on the hole side. Wet the reed with your saliva and then gently and carefully slide the reed under the ligature so it rests on the flat surface of the mouthpiece with the thinnest end facing the tip or end that goes in your mouth ( not the cork end). Gently tighten the ligature screws down so it holds the reed firmly in place with the tip of the reed just matching the tip of the mouthpiece. Slide the mouthpiece cap over the reed and assembled mouthpiece to protect the reed while inserting the mouthpiece in the barrel. Grasp the mouthpiece in your left hand with your thumb poiting at the reed end of the mouthpiece. Grasp the barrel with your right hand and the thumb pointing at the end you will insert the mouthpiece. Gently start the corked end of the mouthpiece into the open end of the barrel. Using a twisting motion with your left hand push the mouthpiece into the barrel until it is completely seated with a very thin crack showing i9n the joint where the mouthpiece and barrel meet. Assembled properly the reed should rest on your bottom lip when the clarinet is in playing position.Here is a link with more help: Notice the ligature is different than I described as there are different designs. It doesn't really matter if the screws are on top or bottom. It is a matter of preference. Hope this helps. If the mouthpiece will not slide in at all it is the wrong one for your clarinet and you will have to take at least the barrel to a good musical instrument store to match a new one.

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.

How do u put on the mouth piece and make a sound?

If you are talking about a single reed instrument such as a saxophone this is how you proceed. First you have to moisten the reed using water or your own saliva. You can do this by placing it in your mouth and rubbing both sides of it with your tongue. Take particular care not to damage the tip of the reed. Take the mouthpiece in one hand and lay the reed on the flat part of the mouthpiece with the thinnest part of the reed towards the tip of the mouthpiece flatside down. The tip of the mouthpiece is the opposite end of the mouthpiece from the one that you put on the instrument. You can't mistake the two. The end that goes on the instrument is like the opening of a tube. With the reed laying flat on the mouthpiece gently slide the ligature ( clamp with one or two screws ) over the end of the mouthpiece and the reed. Take care once more not to damage the end of the reed. Line the very tip of the reed up with the very tip of the mouthpiece leaving a sliver of the mouthpiece showing. Holding the reed in position move the ligature along the reed and mouthpiece so that it is covering the bark part of the cane reed about 1/8 to 1/4 inches from where the bare part of the reed starts. Some mouthpieces have a guide line marked on them. Once the ligature is positioned you can tighten the screws. Do not overtighten them. They just need to be snug enough to secure the reed in position. The reed should be in the position I described in order to speak or vibrate easily. Now you can slightly fold your bottom lip over your bottom teeth and insert the mouthpiece and reed into your mouth. Your top lip should not be folded over your top teeth. Your top teeth should rest on the top of the mouthpiece and your bottom lip should provide a cushion between your bottom teeth and the reed. You should have as much pressure applied between your top and bottom teeth so that someone cannot easily pull the mouthpiece out of your mouth. You will learn how much pressure to apply to affect intonation and produce a good sound with practice. Now with the mouthpiece in your mouth you can blow through it to produce a sound. Your mouth should provide an airtight seal around the mouthpiece if you followed my directions. You can steady the mouthpiece with your hand while try to get a sound. If all you produce is a sqwawk that shouldn't discourage you. What you are trying to do is make a piece of wood vibrate in a controlled manner using breath pressure and your jaw muscles to control the vibration. Do not use too much pressure or the reed will be clamped shut at the tip and not be able to vibrate. You should have at least an inch between your bottom lip and the ligature as to how much mouthpiece should be in your mouth. Once you can consistently make a sound then you can proceed to putting the mouthpiece on the gooseneck with the gooseneck properly installed in the saxophone. You should rub a little cork grease on the cork of the gooseneck before putting the mouthpiece on it. The distance that the mouthpiece goes on determines the tuning. Your lip pressure also affects the tuning but a lot less in comparison. You can vary your lip pressure rhythmically to produce vibrato. Most sax players now hardly use vibrato or use a slow shallow controlled vibrato on notes at the end of phrases. Another thing to note is that to start with you should use about a number 2 reed unless your mouth is particularly sensitive and then I wouldn't go anything less than a 1 1/2 for a little while until you get used to the vibrating sensation and the feeling of your bottom lip between the reed and your bottom teeth. Hope this helps. By the way I have been playing since 1963 and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
