Hey there, I have a new cx12, and the 4,5 holes and the 8,9 holes beat when blown simultanously (the duplicated C's), should i send it back or attempt to tune it myself?

It's up to you and how involved you want to be with your harps. If you know how to tune there's nothing to be afraid of; just be really observant, patient, and work carefully. To maintain your chromatic you might want to get some Pliobond for reattaching valves, and some extra valves from Sissi at Hohner USA.

Ifit were me I'd just do it myself, but Hohner will tune it for free if you recently bought it new.

I've had a few that I've had to retune some chromatics at different times. If it is as new as you're saying, send it back to Hohner to deal with it because you're covered under the warranty.

Joe Spiers is giving you good info to go by and he certainly knows his stuff.

i tune my diatonics, so know how to be careful with reeds, but spending over $150 and not being familiar with chromatics......

Joe, you would do a better job than they would, but I am not you, that is for sure!

Walter, if you've got a old junky one or maybe a really cheapo Chinese made one, use that for practice.
