Has anyone ever done this?

If so,does it effect the sound?

I know some very highly skilled airbrush artists who do detail work on custom cars and such and am toying with having a couple of my harps covers airbrushed with a design on them but not if it will mess up the sound.

Lol,I so never thought of that.

The thing is,the guys I know are starting to get clients.If I don`t get them to do it now i`d never be able to afford them once they start getting really busy lol.

But it`ll just be a couple.I can keep those aside and play the unpainted ones until I know more of what im doin,lol.

Great idea, but I've got a Hohner GM with 'gold' covers that I keep meaning to put on my fave harp. I just know that as soon as I do it'll get lost, drop a reed, or I'll lose my mojo. But how about enamelling the key of the harp on the top plate, so you never put one to your mouth upside down again? For that matter, isn't there a better material to make the covers out of, eg brass? Has anybody done this?

The enamel key thing is a good idea.I was thinking of something similar but raised so I can even feel it ina dark room.Maybe even glow in the dark letters.
