Troubleshooting ASS

  •  I have a reed that no longer works or badly works

 

When a reed no longer works it is mostly because an obstacle (deposition or micro detritus) does not allow it to vibrate corectly through the window in which it oscillates. Simply disassemble the harmonica to clean it, which is very easy with the patented YONBERG quick dismantling system (QDS).

See the tutorial corresponding : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJYeaMZtchs

If the defective reed still does not work after cleaning the harmonica  it may be  due to a slight swiveling of the reed  around its rivet which causes it to rub against the edges of the slot through which it oscillates. It is then necessary to re-align it very carefully  in the axis of the slot and it should again work without problem.

 

  • I have a reed who becomes low

When  a reed quickly becomes lower that means that it is breaking. It is therefore imperative to quickly change this defective  reed.
