Howdy Y'all,

Will anyone else be going from HC? Sarge? Mike Peace the harmonica repair specialist will be there. (Hint: He lives about three miles from the venue!)

Yes, hard to find good footage of him playing, just a few bits and pieces of him playing for the most part,
I hope more of his library series gets visually recorded.

Here are a couple of tunes that I like...

I think fairly safe to say he is distinctive in his playing, songwriting...hope folks enjoy..

I can tell you what I do for that problem and it works 100%. I send it to Mike Street with a note that says: Mike!! Fix this thing!

I wasn't going to weigh in on this. Why are you attacking the reed slot tolerance?
Suzuki laser cuts their reed plates, lasers don't dull, the tolerances are perhaps
the tightest in the industry. The reeds are welded to the plate robotically, it is rare
that you'll find a reed misaligned on a Suzuki reed plate.
Embossing was a needed to make for an air tight instrument years ago. After Hohner
(number one in sales) re-tooled in 2004 and generally greatly improved their entire line
the other major manufacturers followed suit, (Hering hasn't and is enjoying the same fate
as Bends) now because of the improvements heavy embossing once used to even out
the reed tolerances is (thankfully) rarely needed.
Hole three draw is one of the hardest holes to control on a harmonica, because of the
notes available you'll need to create 4 different resonant chambers within your mouth to
accurately sound each note, especially the bends.
Regards, Reed Smith

Dexer, I can tell a difference between the two, but no, I don't think it's the stiffness of the reed causing my problem. I did some more work on the reed plates and made it worse then made it better and now I'm back to the 3 hole being pretty much the problem. In that time, I did notice my cover plates were not in great shape so that was part of it. I took a breather from it but am going to get back on it because I really need my A! Funny thing is that I had bought an F Harpmaster a while back that did the same thing out of the box and I tweaked it just a bit and now it plays fine. Not sure exactly what I did right on that one but I'm learning.

Yessir, I can tell a big difference between the two. I really like my Bluesmaster, but then I do the Harpmasters, too!
