Re: Health concerns regarding materials in harmonicas?

Glue ex. some superglues are dangerous to inhale but well dryed become crystallized and harmless. I have worked in color industries some years ago where they make UV colors. The UV...

Re: Valves

It would be worth much if some valve material was found that could last a little longer without sticking or making noise. I guess that ultrasuede only works good as halfvalved.
