: : : How long a Harmonica last, I usually Play every day for an hour or so, and after a month the thing is out of tune.Does the (Honner) harmonics have a short life span?
: I should have proof read my queston better!

: Hey, Whatta ya say? Some players rock hard and
may blow it out in one nite. Some can have their
harps up to 15 years, with care. As a beginner
who practices alot, my experience over the last 5
years is that a harp will last 1 to 5 years or less. keep in a case, they just have to be
there when you need to play, whether its in coat pocket or in the truck on the seat. Play any new
harp delicately so you can get use to the instrument and its responses based on its key,
they are a little different that way. On a 10 hole
A at the 7 hole blow ( MARINE ) it sounds like a grinding chord or just flat or some lower octave,
but 7 blow works with 5 blow, even 4 while flat...
like playn with two different keyed harps. On Dkey
7 blow and draw... takes more preasure for it to sound as well as 8, 9 & 10... On Bb 6 blow blew out
and on draw just a sustainable whine

On F, the 4 blow is flat, so combine , 4to5 6to7
4to5 7to8, the 5 draw is also flat and ten blow as well

Clock time duration?
