: I've been working on bending recently (still have a tough time on 2 & 3 holes). Sometimes I get this very high pitched squeal, almost a ringing sound, on my Lee Oskars (never on my Hohners). Has anyone else heard this? More importantly, what is it and what causes it? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks...

I've noticed that the Lee Oscar harps do that sometimes. I have 2 of them, and several Hohners as well as an old harp made by S. Mano of Japan, and the LOs have a tendancy to squeek and squeel.

The problem is not in the harp, but in my technique. When I sharpen my technique I can sometimes get a reasonably clean sound from holes 2 & 3 draw, even the bends. Though those holes seem to be inherrently difficult to draw cleanly.
