I am at practising bending, I can do it on the first hole, and almost there on holes 3 & 4, but something sounds wrong on hole 2, especially on the draw. It takes a lot more effort and doesn’t sound as clear as any of the others. I can hear that my bend technique is having some effect, but nowhere near as pronounced as the holes either side of it. Have I damaged the reed somehow?
The 2 hole is notorious for being a little harder to bend at the start, actually because of how the harmonica is designed. So, I’d say it most likely is not damaged. However, If you feel like uploading a small sound clip, i could tel you 🙂
