BUT WARNING TO THOSE WHO MIGHT BE MAKING THIS YOUR FIRST PRO-GRADE CHROMATIC HARP (As I did) When you take it out of the case and start to play it, and notice that a select few holes(primarily in the low and upper region) are not producing a clear tone, ABSOLUTELY DO NOT think that it's the harmonica.
