If there is a rattling noise when you play the lowest draw notes of a harp like this, this is caused by the reed actually hitting the lower cover.
Speaking of valves, if you are playing either a chromatic or a valved diatonic (such as the Suzuki ProMaster 350V), you may encounter buzzing noises like this.
Finally, there is a reed noise which commonly affects the Lee Oskar, Huang and Suzuki harps, although Hohners are not totally immune to it either. When you play a note normally, you may be surprised to learn that what you are hearing is not the sound of the reed itself, but the sound of a column of air set into motion by the action of the reed swinging back and forth in its slot, the sound of the reed itself being drowned out by the sheer volume of the air column. In addition to the above, there are also some more dramatic modifications to the reeds that are a bit beyond the scope of this article, but hopefully the above remedies will get rid of most of those annoying noises that plague reeds from time to time. Currently the Mayor of London, he previously served as the Member of Parliament for Henley-on-Thames and as editor of The Spectator magazine. Johnson was educated at the European School of Brussels, Ashdown House School, Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford, where he read Literae Humaniores. On his father's side Johnson is a great-grandson of Ali Kemal Bey, a liberal Turkish journalist and the interior minister in the government of Damat Ferid Pasha, Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire, who was murdered during the Turkish War of Independence.[5] During World War I, Boris's grandfather and great aunt were recognised as British subjects and took their grandmother's maiden name of Johnson. Try as I might, I could not look at an overhead projection of a growth profit matrix, and stay conscious. He wrote an autobiographical account of his experience of the 2001 election campaign Friends, Voters, Countrymen: Jottings on the Stump. Johnson is a popular historian and his first documentary series, The Dream of Rome, comparing the Roman Empire and the modern-day European Union, was broadcast in 2006. After being elected mayor, he announced that he would be resuming his weekly column for The Daily Telegraph. After having been defeated in Clwyd South in the 1997 general election, Johnson was elected MP for Henley, succeeding Michael Heseltine, in the 2001 General Election.
He was appointed Shadow Minister for Higher Education on 9 December 2005 by new Conservative Leader David Cameron, and resigned as editor of The Spectator soon afterwards.
A report in The Times[22] stated that Cameron regarded the possible affair as a private matter, and that Johnson would not lose his job over it.
The Conservative Party hired Australian election strategist Lynton Crosby to run Johnson's campaign. Johnson pledged to introduce new Routemaster-derived buses to replace the city's fleet of articulated buses if elected Mayor. I believe Londoners should have a greater say on how their city is run, more information on how decisions are made and details on how City Hall money is spent. Ken Livingstone presides over a budget of more than ?10billion and demands ?311 per year from the average taxpaying household in London.
Under my Mayoralty I am certain that London will be judged as a civilised place; a city that cares for and acknowledges its older citizens. The Mayor’s biggest area of responsibility is transport, and I intend to put the commuter first by introducing policies that will first and foremost make journeys faster and more reliable. Often when you play a bent note or an overblow, you will get a high pitched shrieking along with the normal note, sounding like this.


However, under certain circumstances, the reed can be set into motion (sometimes even when it not actually sounding normally) and starts to twist diagonally, causing a higher harmonic of the reed itself to be sounded. He found that placing a small piece of adhesive tape on the surface of the reed was enough to damp these unwanted vibrations.
Nail varnish (polish) tends to make the reed slightly sharp - in fact I've noticed that treated reeds tend to become increasingly sharp as the nail varnish ages.
In reference to his cosmopolitan ancestry, Johnson has described himself as a "one-man melting pot" — with a combination of Muslims, Jews and Christians comprising his great-grandparentage.[6] His father's maternal grandmother, Marie Louise de Pfeffel, was a descendant of Prince Paul of Wurttemberg through his relationship with a German actress. They have two sons—Milo Arthur (born 1995) and Theodore Apollo (born 1999)—and two daughters—Lara Lettice (born 1993) and Cassia Peaches (born 1997).[13] Boris Johnson and his family currently live in Holloway, North London. In 1999 he became editor of The Spectator, where he stayed until December 2005 upon being appointed Shadow Minister for Higher Education. He is also author of three collections of journalism, Johnson's Column, Lend Me Your Ears and Have I Got Views For You.
On 2 April 2006 it was alleged in the News of the World that Johnson had had another extramarital affair, this time with Times Higher Education Supplement journalist Anna Fazackerley. Yet Londoners have little confidence in the Mayor spending their money with care and prudence. It was here that David Cameron and all his supporters gathered to congratulate him on becoming Mayor of London.
This is the sound of a reed that is not correctly centred in it slot and the reed itself is catching on the side of the slot.
Sometimes, particularly when attempting to produce an overblow, you will get that high pitched noise by itself. These "notes" can also be produced by bowing the reed in the manner of a musical saw, but unfortunately for us, they are rarely harmonically related to the pitch we are trying to play, so the results can be very unpleasant to hear. You can also try to help this along by gapping the reeds optimally for your playing style - by and large, reeds with lower gaps are less prone to this diagonal torsion.
Often a reed will be much sharper when cold, then start to return to its correct pitch as you play it. Through Prince Paul, Johnson is a descendant of King George II, and through George's great-great-great grandfather King James I a descendant of all of the previous British royal houses. His comic first novel Seventy-Two Virgins was published in 2004,[16] and his next book will be The New British Revolution, though he has put publication on hold until after the London Mayoral election.[17] He was nominated in 2004 for a British Academy Television Award, and has attracted several unofficial fan clubs and sites.
In 2004 he was appointed to the front bench as Shadow Minister for the Arts in a small reshuffle resulting from the resignation of the Shadow Home Affairs Spokesman, Nick Hawkins. In 1995 a recording of a telephone conversation was made public revealing a plot by a friend to physically assault a News of the World journalist.
In fact, Lee Oskars in the lowest keys have recently been given an extra lower cover to give the reeds more room to swing freely. One treatment I stumbled across totally by accident, involves adding something in the corners of the reeds to damp these unwanted vibrations. Wax treatment tends to have less effect on the pitch, but leave your harp in a car on a hot day and the wax can melt and run along the edges of the reed, sealing it into the reedplate.


If you gently push the reed towards the plate, you may be able to see where the reed is catching. On low C instruments such as the Hohner 364 and 365, the lowest draw reeds swing so far that a slight reshape of the cover is not going to help too much. I originally used nail varnish (AKA nail polish), but around the same time, Bobbie Giordano was working with a similar treatment using beeswax, although my personal preference would be the orthodontic wax you are able to get from most pharmacies. You should be able to find this product at your local hobby store, but as I said, almost any sort of adhesive tape will do the job. Also wax seems to be a shorter-lived cure than nail varnish, although both treatments will require reapplying from time to time.
You can align the reed by using the small reed wrench that comes with the Lee Oskar repair kit (although be warned - this is too large to fit the heel of a Hohner reed), or you can lever it sideways by inserting a thin feeler gauge along the side of the reed that is catching. One way to reduce the travel of the draw reed is to place a valve over the outside of the corresponding blow reed. If you are getting this noise when you are drawing a note, then the offending reed is the draw reed; likewise, if it is happening during a blow bend or an overblow, then it is the blow reed that is to blame. I prefer to place it on the underside of the reed (ie, the bit that is visible through the slot), but it seems to work well enough on both sides. TurboTape alters the tuning slightly on application, but after retuning it should stay constant.
With a little bit of trial and error, you should be able to get the reed set so that there is a nice small margin of daylight visible along both sides of the reed when you hold it up to the light.
The placement of the tape isn't too critical either, but if you place it somewhere near the middle of the reed, it will affect the tuning to a lesser extent. However, if you use Micropore tape, it can absorb moisture from your breath, causing the notes to flatten as you play.
Sometimes similar sounds can occur as a result of a small burr of metal on the edge of the reed, or a tiny bit of debris caught in the slot. In fact, adding the valve enables you to get a single-reed bend (like on a chromatic harp) that may actually be more useful on the extremely low harps. Also, adhesive tapes can often "bleed" over time, allowing sticky stuff to lurk on the surface of your reeds ready to trap all manner of unwanted debris. Gently plucking the reed should be enough to cure the latter and the former can be removed with some careful scraping with a scalpel or sharp craft knife. You will probably need to raise the tuning a little on the draw reed, as well as widening its gap, to prevent it from stalling under sharp attack.
One tip - if you get a this sort of noise when bending a draw note, but not when playing the unbent draw note, check the blow reed. The good news is, fitting the valve, retuning and adjusting the draw reed do not require you to remove the reedplates from the comb, so it's a nice easy modification to try for yourself to see if you like the results.
