Ms Series

What do you need to do to look after a harmonica and to keep it in good condition?

I'm a total beginner and am thinking of getting a Hohner Marine Band Special 20 Diatonic harmonica, and am just wondering if there are any parts that need replacing regularly, or parts that need to be cleaned, or anything like that? c:

If you use reasonable care such as not playing right after eating or drinking soda, and you shake it out and let it air dry after each use; if you don't expose it to poor environments such as leaving it in a hot car in summer or playing it in the rain; if you don't abuse it with your playing style like trying to play louder than an amped guitar and blowing out the reeds; etc... it can last 100 years with an occasional wipe-down of the covers.

Slap it, holes down, on your open palm a couple times to shake out condensate and any particles, wipe down the covers, and store it in a safe place and you're usually good.

Abusive and aggressive players often find the need to replace blown reeds though and that's why Lee Oskar are so easy to work on and why Hohner made the MS series. Players that don't use care and play while eating dinner or drinking, play in the rain, toss them around wherever they happen to land, etc will find some really nasty stuff growing in theirs and will need an occasional reedplate or comb replacement. Putting it away wet with partly eaten food bits inside is asking for some nasty green stuff to grow in there. Letting little children wail on them is a good way to get some damage or nasties too. Guys who play hard blues and rock every day for a few hours will also find they blow out the reeds pretty regularly and will need replacements.

The real advantage to replaceable reeds and plates is for those who like to tweak their harps and do custom work in there. Tuning the reeds is a pretty common tweak and have a replaceable reed plate helps that task a lot.

Old-school players dipped theirs in whiskey, gin, or vodka occasionally, shook 'em out, air dried to disinfect them. Do that at your own peril though - it can damage a wood comb.
