Sarge does, scroll down the Harmonica Hardware page for his posts.

BTW, I like your avatar, he looks like his name should be "Gopher Baroque" :pinch:

I traded for a couple of these in March and like them very much. Bought a few more at Bean Blossom this year. Nicely made with a real instrument feel to them. I have found them to be suited to my style
I don't play hard at all and these really respond to whisper playing. Look cool also.

I have always admired the looks of harmonicas, but I think it is subjective to players only.
I have never, at any time at a gig or anywhere else, had someone mention how much they liked
the looks of my harmonica/s. For that very reason I bought some Hohner Rockets in the puke
green combed Amp models. They are Rockets with an ugly green comb that aren't selling, so
Rockin' Ron is letting them go for $20 dollars less than the standard Grey comb Rocket.
The only difference in the two models-other than the green comb-is the Rocket mouth covers
are open like a Marine Band, the Amp model Rocket has closed covers like Special20. I had
my doubts with the Rocket at first impression, but they take adjustment really well and once
the work is done play GREAT, for me anyhoo.

I have tried to work on one of my harps and what a disaster it was. It ended up in the trash can.

I guess my being such a tight wad I squeak served me somewhat when it came to working on my
harmonicas. Having never thrown anything harmonica related away I had plenty of junked material
to practice on before I jumped into trying to improve a set I would play at a gig. And I can still bugger
one up occasionally, the difference is now I can fix my F**kups.
