: I just picked up a Hohner Chromonica 270.
Question 1. Brass dont rust, its oxidation and should clean right off.
Question 2. It wont spread and is a result of the oil or sweat on a persons hand at the factory. It should not hurt the sound.
Question 3. I would contact Hohner and just inform them of the situation, theres nothing to worry about or fix, there are several techs on the net that tune, repair and replace reeds and reedplates on chroms. Look at it as a learning experience and dont let it get you down. Keep on playing those Blues.......Bluz
