In Reply to: Harmonica with Key C, What should hole 1 sound like? posted by Mr.Speed on January 26, 2002 at 14:51:37:
: I am new to harmonica and just have a quick question. Hole 1 should be a low sound. But when I blow/draw on it I get avibrated sound and the harmonica vibrates. I have never played a wind instrument before, so is this normal?
As you mentioned, hole 1 is quite low, so it's not unlikely that you would feel the vibration at that frequency. If you hear any metallic (clinky) sound or the note sounds out of tune your harp needs to be adjusted or replaced.
You may get more vibration if you're also getting some air flow through hole 2.
Hope I've helped.
