Re: Introducing the GASKET-VALVE System

It seems to work if I exclude the blow plate gasket for the Session Steel. I've gone through most of the models, and for those I've tried a through-out regular breathing pattern is not compatible with a blow plate gasket. Don't worry, I understand side effects are hard to avoid during maintenance :)...

Re: PowerChromatic realization

Is this G? (A/B C/D E/F# G/A A/B) That's how is labeled on Seydel's website. What other keys do you use or do you play everything on one harmonica? While waiting for a response from Brendan, here are my 2 cents on the topic. What I like to do when faced with these kinds of questions is to: 1. Grade...

Re: Introducing the GASKET-VALVE System

I have been trying to buy these for a few days now, but it's proven difficult! Now that the store seems to be working again, and the text on the page seems to have caught up with the price adjustment for larger orders, I face another difficulty: There are no gasket-valves with regular breathing patt...

Re: TuneMaster harmonica

Actually it's not necessary to drill holes in the covers, since they are Jim's Turbolids: pull-off snap-on in seconds. I actually came to the same conclusion after thinking it through again :D Since metal covers is an option as well the idea might still have some value. The reason I didn't think of...

Is something wrong with the online store?

I've been trying to order some gasket-valves, but I can't seem to check out from the online store. I enter some products into my cart, and open the window to view it. There is a button for checking out with PayPal, but when I click it there is a pop-up window informing me I must enter a zip code. Wh...

Re: First position aeolian natural minor custom tuning.

I just found that your tuning can be bought off the shelf from Suzuki! Apparently, when you buy a harp labelled "Natural minor" from Suzuki you won't get the same layout as you would from the other major manufacturers, but the one you described. At least if the following chart is up to date: http://...

Re: Combination tremolo/octave tuning?

I have uploaded some of the sounds corresponding to my pictures. A normal tremolo, the very same as is shown in my last post with the name trem.png sounds like this: https://cloud.fripost.org/s/SRXxTRgDG57BzWM In all the rest of the examples, there are two tones tuned a perfect octave apart, and eac...

Re: TuneMaster harmonica

One idea would be to drill holes in the cover plates above each magnet, so that it could be adjusted without removing the cover plate. This would facilitate quick adjustments. Another option would be to selectively drill holes for frequently changed notes. I got the idea after seeing Brendan's proto...

Re: Introduce yourself

Hi folks, My name is Robert Laferriere, and I'm from Russell, Manitoba, Canada. 🇨🇦 I've been playing the harp for about 10 years now, although only in any serious way for the past 3 or 4. I've somewhat transitioned from being primarily a guitar-based loop station performer, to a sound that heavily ...
