Re: Accordion Reed Harmonica Experiments

Excellent news.
This sounds like the best thing in harmonicas since the switch harp.
Any thoughts as to how you would market it?
Order individual harps by a tuning map, or maybe a kit with a comb and multiple inserts for easy experimenting?

Re: Any news?

Great news.
And I’d buy another first generation slip slider if they were still available.

Re: New Tool and Method for Improving Harmonica Reed Response

Nice simple Idea. I love it.
Time to look for a nail art pen!
I bet it would work well as valve glue too.

Re: PowerBender Versus EdHarmonica

Since the EDharmonica is basically a triple Paddy minus the Richter, it seems the Paddy Richter Lucky 13 would give you two octaves of the EDharmonica tuning with the possibility of a change of pace up top. Or you could take an A lucky 13, and by a little retuning get a proper EDharmonica layout in ...

Re: Comb of Fanfare S question

It is the same comb as used on their chromatics, so the button in and button out reeds need to be separated. That saves them some programming/ machining work. Also, tremolo reeds seem to work better with the divider, even though you activate both chambers at the same time. Without the divider there ...

I think the joke was the Mixolydian Irish Scale play on words. I appreciated it as well.

Re: Notation Software with Harmonica Plugins - Recommendations wanted

It might be easier to just do Jianpu or ABC format. Tunes at The Session website are in ABC but are instantly convertible to sheet or midi files. If I see a tune there that I like I open them in an app called midiscore and can then change the Key or tempo or whatever, and play it to get the rhythm a...

Re: Lucky 13 Paddy Richter and Tequila

I retuned a harmonica like that once,I didn’t really give it much of a chance and went back to regular Paddy Richter. I play around with a couple of variations of Paddy Richter and a couple Pentatonic tunings, 4key and pentabender and enjoy them. Someday I may even get good at playing one lol. Latel...
