: The pitch when i blow on hole 7 of my C harp, has gone flat? Why has it done this? I have taken it apart and nothing seems to be wrong, i didnt drop it neither, it just bust?? Is it fixable, or do i need a new one??

Metal Fatique, yes you can tune it up by removing some metal from the end away from the rivet by scratching or filing it. I would practice this operation on a cheap harp first. After each scratch hold the cover plates on and see, or should I say hear where your at. I slide the end of the cover plate under the bad reed then use a pen knife and scratch about a 1/4 inch near the end of the reed. This takes some practice to get it right. I sounds harder than it is, you can do it.........Best to Ya .......bluz
