I have two Honer harmonicas with the same problem. There are a few notes that stick hard when I try to blow them. Sometimes I can clear them by blowing super hard, but they come back very quickly. Could this be a maintenance issue? I bought them both new and haven't used them much.

I don't know much about harmonicas, but it sounds like some of the reeds aren't flexing like they should. Maybe they're stiffer than they should be or there is something obstructing them?

I've taken both apart, but I couldn't find any gunk in either.

Are you an experienced harp player? There's more to it than blowing really hard.

What model Hohners did you get?

Look at the Lee Oskar website for some advice on playing. Lee Oskar tips page.

There's other spots on the web that will give you good advice.

I am in no way experienced at this. Thankyou for the link.
