CAD$71.25

Learn to repair, upgrade or customize your own harmonicas to make each one of them a high-quality instrument.

A well-playing harmonica is a joy to play.

Many harmonicas require a lot of effort to play and it makes you feel like you are fighting with the instrument. That can leave you questioning your skills or thinking about giving up.

There is no reason playing harmonica should feel like work - it should be FUN!

Shim Stock (three pieces)

CAD$3.75

Shim stock is very useful to have on hand. Use it to de-burr after over-embossing or for measuring air leaks.

I tried sheets of tempered shim stock but ran into trouble. I can't cut small pieces easily without crumpling the edges and that defeats the purpose!

Grobet Tuning File

CAD$22.50

Grobet USA, Made in Italy, Swiss pattern file.

0-Cut is right on the margin between coarse and fine. It's perfect for removing brass with a light touch. It's coarse enough to have power but doesn't leave scratches and tracks on the reed.

Warding shape: Like a flat triangle with teeth on every side.

Raise or lower the pitch of a reed with the reed plate on or off the comb.

This file works on Brass, Stainless Steel and Phosphor Bronze reeds.

M1.4 Tap for reed replacement

CAD$5.60

Use this tap for reed replacement.

A pilot hole for this tap can be drilled with a 3/64" drill bit - that's a commonly-available drill bit in the US and Canada. In most cases, the rivet hole is already the perfect size and no further drilling is needed.

To use this tap, I recommend you use a tap handle or a pin vise. A handle is not provided with this item and is sold separately.
