Had same problem with comb swell. Ended up having to sand down and reseal. Even with problem fixed, It becomes uncomfortable to play for long periods. Some reeds are a bit out of tune especially on the draw, but I cannot recall if it was like that when it was new. When it is not frustrating you, it does sound great. Very easy to play.

Plays great and sounds great. My only problem is that after playing for an hour or two, the comb would swell up so bad I couldn't play anymore. After pulling it apart and soaking the comb in butcher block oil, the problem has gotten much better. I would recommend this harp to anyone, with the information on comb sealing.
