Full list reed replacement kit

Back to the Maintenance, Repair and Customization Room

Hi all,

I have seen numerous bits and pieces on reed replacement, but was wondering if anybody has put together a full list in one place of the tools and sources? I have so many spent harps lying around that it really would pay to start replacing reeds, just never got around to it. Now that I am going to the trouble to emboss and gap, seems like it would be more time effective to replace, emboss and gap single reeds than do it to a whole new reed plate.

Boris Plotnikov Replied: offers reed replacement kits and sets of reeds. Anyway they are too pricy... I rare blow out reeds, so it's not good ideafor me to buy this kit...

this has nothing to do with harps, amps, mic's or any thing harp. I don't have a list but it would be nice. I was looking at your picture. and was wondering were it was taken and what are you wearing. and boy does it look cold. Living in South Florida for 20 years I miss the snow and the mountins.

I spent my summer vacations in the catskills of upstate NY, and always had a great time walking the back roads.

Hey Walterharp, I have a video done by "Rupert Oysler" called (Harmonica Repair & Modification) that IMO is quite detailed. Maybe you could check into that, or others here may have opions about it. I haven't yet begun to do any of this work myself, this purchase was just my way of investigating it. But from my observations, I certainly have gained insight to the tools needed and the whole terminolgy. Also you might try contacting (Dave Payne) of "Elk River Harmonicas), he's a great guy, very helpful and does custimizing work himself. Hope this info can be helpful to you.

Goooood call!!! I believe a concise list would be rather helpful. ESPECIALLY in the tools department. I hear different folks claim they use different tools to take apart harps and do reed work. I wish there were a universally accepted or "best" way to approach it. Best of luck to you with your reed replacement, sir!
