I never touched a harmonica, but, god know why, i decided to try and love it.
However, i got two questions :
I own a hohner blue midnight in C which i bought, and a seydel session steel in A which i received, and both seem to have this weird same issue:
when drawing from hole nr 2, the sound is everything but normal, like it was filled. it’ s hard to describe. I first noticed it on the hohner, and thought “well, i must have bought the one that is broken, heh whatever” :-p, but then when i received the session steel, exact same issue, so i was wondering maybe that’s normal?
i tried with a sound tuner (i don’t know how to say in english, but you play the note, and the app tells you what note it is), and everything (almost) sounds ok, except that 2nd hole draw, the tuner tells me it’s the exact same note that the 3 blowed…
i don’t know if i explain myself correctly.
2nd question is: on the seydel session steel, the metallic exterior seems not to be “air tight” (see this photo).
is it normal? does it matter?
thanks a lot for all your infos !
