FIXING, TUNING ONE'S HARMONICA

 

One of the problems harmonicists face, except of handling their instrument (I mean their harmonica), is playing with a fine tuned instrument. I 'll give you pieces of advice on what I've already experimented (learning by myself). Do not hesitate to notify me with all your tips, exchange a good address or ask for more details.

Tuning

Special tuning

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tuning

To be clear about it, there are two things to be done :

  1. Raising the note
  2. Lowering the note

 

  • Lowering the note

To lower the note, there are two ways. Either you file the foot of the reed (not advisable!), or you can weigh its head.

I advise against the first solution because, on the one hand, it might weaken the reed, and on the other hand, if you lower the note too much, you'll have to raise it by filing the head...and if you file too much, back to your initial problem... Needless to say that it can turn to a mess...and the reeds might become too weak. Nevertheless those who dare can read the following explanations and instructions.

The second solution (weighing the head) seems the better one, since you don't weaken the blade (no metal off) and you can always cancel this fixing by taking the weight away... Indeed!!! My secret is to use superglue.... Here's how I do.... In every case you should first try with an old harmo...

At first, becool because you'll have to be very meticulous... Stay zen and bring out your nimble fingers !

For my work I use the Korg AT-12 tuner. It's not the cheapest one but it's essential for a good work...

Select the reed you want to lower ; find its height with the tuner, then unscrew the hood of the harmonica : aspirated notes are obtained with the visible reeds , blown notes with the reeds on the "inside" side of the plates. If I want to lower a blown note, I dismantle the plate and  put it back on its wrong side so that the reed can be easily fixed. Put a Bristol board under the reed, then put a drop a glue on the end of the strip. You should not overflow (in that case the Bristol board may prevent from any damage) ; the drop of glue should be put on the very centre of the reed, avoid contact with the edges (see the following instructions).

Lime1

 

Roughly speaking litres of glue are not necessary... Keep it dry one hour or two (put the harmo under a lamp to save time but not too close because of the plastic...). Blow or breath in  into the hole of matter and watch at your tuner. At this stage, the rest is pretty easy...

  1. The reed is not low enough : put some more glue.
  2. The reed is too low : cautiously file flat the glue and watch over your tuner (I use a cardboard nail file). Ask for your gril friend.... A very reliable solution (unlike metal, glue is hard to file) would be to cut the hard glue (foot-side of the blade) with a razor blade.

For those who dare and have a bigger account than mine, they will be able to purchase a new harmo (indeed you're not a state servant nor temping in entertainment), you can try the file option...

To lower a note you must file the foot of the blade : not anyhow of course... What's best is to file very flat and diagonally, not really on the foot.

Lime2

Let's see for the second case

  • Raising the note

You should need it for a special tuning or simply to ajust a note. The fifth aspirated hole on a 10-hole Richter system is particularly sensitive and tends to lower, especially if you play wildly. To be blunt about it, if after the tuning the note keeps on lowering, the metal might be spun. In this case you should change the reed or the harmo...

My unique suggestion would be to file the reed. The main technique remains the same but this time you have to file the head of the reed.

CAUTION !!! You shall never file the reed shorter ; you should instead file on the thickness. Always file diagonaly and flat...

 

Lime3

 

You're now ready to save money. I've a few friends, harmonicists, with dozens of harmonicas which have lost a note...It's time to try out...

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Special tuning

You should also want to fix your harmo in order to make it play unexpected sounds, maybe just for fun, to solve a problem (how to play this piece all in G and with this stucking C sharp with your 10-hole harmo ?) or because you want to try new scales... Of course the technique to raise or lower the note remains the same...

Among fine tuning...

* Lower each third of a 10-hole harmo without fixing the aspirated notes

* Raise of a half-key the F on a C harmo (fifth aspirated hole)

* Lower the B of a half-key on a C harmo (seventh aspirated hole)

The rest is a question of imagination. I'm not familiar with musical theory but by playing a fixed harmo I got the inspiration for some pieces which don't sound "so worse"...

Segway Verona offers tours that make sure you will enjoy a fun and immerse experience of our beloved city. We combine Segway, our innovative way of transportation, with tours in the historical city centre. Through our explorations of 1 or 2 hours, we will bring you to the most breathtaking spots, so that, if you do not stay long in Verona, we make sure that you see all of the unmissable sights!

Segway is really easy to use! It is so intuitive that it feels like an extension of the human body. To understand why, consider this: if you stand up and lean forward, so that you are out of balance, you will intuitively put your leg forward. Segway works the same way: to move forward or backward, the rider just leans slightly in such direction, and Segway will follow your movements. It is also easy to turn right or left, since the rider just has to push respectively Segway’s handlebar.

Segway is safe. Anyone over the age of 12 can join our tours, except for pregnant women. Apart from these cathegories, we encorage people of every age to try Segway, because this self-balancing object can really make your experience in Verona much more delightful! In fact, if it is hot, you will enjoy some fresh air and avoid to sweat; if it is cold, you will have the possibility of staying outside the least possible time. It is proved that our 2 hours tours show you what you will see in 6 hours walking!

All the tours start with a little training on how to use Segway, because for us safety is the priority. However, we experienced that it takes just a little practice to master on Segway! There are no required skills and, in particular, no need to be able to bicycle. There will always be a tour leader with you, guiding the whole group, so that you can enjoy the view and the tour of Verona. Audioguides (available in different languages) will provide the information you need to fully comprehend the history and architecture of our main monuments, squares and buildings.

In particular, our 2 hours tour will show you: Piazza Bra, one of the biggest squares in Italy, with the Arena, the famous Roman amphitheatre; we will then take Via Oberdan in order to see Portoni Borsari, one of the ancient entrance of the Roman city; we will firstly explore Piazza Erbe and secondly Piazza Dei Signori, two squares full of symbols and buildings with enchanting beauty, and then see Arche Scaligere. Heading to the Duomo, Verona’s Cathedral, we will pass by Santa Anastasia, next to the Conservatory of music; after that, we will have a break on Ponte Pietra, the bridge with the breathtaking view of the Roman Theatre and San Pietro Castle (and much more). On our way back, we will stop at Juliet’s house, so that you don’t forget to take pictures and write your names on the walls! We will conclude our tour with Castelvecchio, the Scaligeri castle and enjoy its amazing view of Verona.

People who went on tours with us really appreciate our flexibility: we do not have fixed tour’s hours, so we can arrange the time that fits the best. Moreover, we try to adjust the path according to your preferences, spending less time on spots you have already seen and dedicate more on your favourite sights. Read what people say about us on tripadvisor...

So, if you want to make the most out of your time in Verona, contact us or stop by our office!

OFFICE HOURS: Monday to Saturday (only closed on Sunday) from 10 am to 5 pm.

DIRECTIONS: We are located in Piazza Cittadella 11b, very close to Piazza Bra, the main square with the Arena.

From Piazza Bra you can arrive at our office on foot (3 minutes): pass under the arch of the gateway with the big clock (Portoni della Bra) and walk through Corso Porta Nuova for approximately 100
