: Hi, just got my son a pocket harmonica and he can't get any sound from the 9th and/or 10th hole. What can we do? He was up at 5:30 a.m. to practice, so we want to help him maintain the momentum. Do we need a new harmonica? Thanks.
Pie Lover had the right idea that something may be stuck in the reeds. A Q-tip with a little alcohol can clean it pretty well. Sometimes what might be stuck in it might be dried kool-aid or some other liquid that just needs to be washed out. Don't press the Q-tip on the reeds too hard or you may damage them.
Does the holes not work when you blow AND draw?
