Hello harmonica fellows!

I just got a Hohner CX12. Interesting instrument.

Sadly and for some reason it didn't came with any user manual so I don't know how to dissassemble it for cleaning.

Also, the blow/draw 1 are a little bit flat in intonation. Not very different from any diatonic harp, but I want to make sure that mine came in proper condition.

Any suggestion? Thanks

Hohner has a video on disassembly and cleaning for the CX12: https://youtu.be/mDjJIluEX-g
Hope this helps :)

the video referenced by amitu is for the Super 64 Chromatica.

The CX12 is a different beast entirely.
Fortunately, there is a video of the CX12 here:

The slide on mine sounds like a freight yard switch. What's the cure for that?

One solution is to keep your finger on the button, no jabs.
Another is to distress the slide, there is a thread on Slidemeister about it.
