Hi All,
I apologise in advance if this tpoic has already beern raised in this forum, but I couldn't find anything.

Does anyone know where I can buy the individual reeds, not the entire reed plates. I have a lucky 13 (bought some 2nd hand just to try them) and the 1st note on my G harp is broken. I am happy to buy the reed plate if it is available, but if not i need to replace the reed.

Thanks

Kayron

I don't remember which manufacturer makes those. Could be Easttop or their hometown competitor which name I have forgotten.
Anyway, usually with the Asian harps we cannot obtain individual reeds unless you know the right people. Sometimes they sell spare/replacement reed plates, but I'm not sure about the L13.
Sometimes you can get used reeds to do the job. Can be slightly challenging to find a good reed to fit the slot for the reeds which are the common failures but usually something can be found to do the job.

Brendon Power set up ----------

Brendan Power set up a few Harp Techs with replacement reeds to maintain the Lucky 13. I would suggest contacting to find out who these techs are.

Keeep in Mind that these are welded reeds, so unless you know what you are doing, you might want to send the harp off to a tech.

Sorry, I do not work on East top, but I would imagine that a tech that does could come up with something.

Yeah, I have some Lucky 13 reeds, but I don’t sell them, I use them for repairs.
Same with the Suzuki reeds, I need to keep what I have for repairs.
