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.

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 the 64 Chromatic octaves Professional Model by M Hohner. The slide is stuck. How can I fix it.


Try lubing with a little CRC 226 which is available at Home Depot in the electrical dept in a blue can. Use only this product as there are othe CRC products there. Tis is a water displacer and a very thin lubricant. Put some on the slide and work it gently. When you get it free, keep it free with just a tiny bit of the 226 once in a while.

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.

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.
