: I agree. Sometimes it's better to cut your losses.
: : I'm sorry to say you are better off leaving it alone and buying a new one. If it is as "old and grungy" as you say, when you take the reed plates off, you may never get it back together the way it was, especially if the wood comb has a crack in it or warped; which they tend to do after a few years of playing and temperature
I would like to put reed plates in my sp 20's but I need to buy the horner cross harp seris in ordre to do this. then I saw Sp 20's for 12.99!!! (Musicians friend.com)heck the reed plate is 16.00...why bother??
: : Other than that, you should use soap and warm water and an old toothbrush to clean harmonica parts. Read the repairs faqs on this site for more.
: : Good luck,

: : : I have a grungy old echo(2 sides). If I take reed plates off wood,what can I dip the reed plates in to remove grime,dirt,mold, from them ? Thanks
