Re: NEW - instructional videos for Play Irish Music on the Blues Harp

No. I have a laptop with MSWindows7 and Google Chrome. (Maybe you have seen it. I had it with me in Norrköping.) I am definitely not able to change anything on this machine, because the next thing would be, that there will not run anything any more. :oops: If any of the videos will run like the trai...

Re: NEW - instructional videos for Play Irish Music on the Blues Harp

Sorry, vimeo does not yet run on my equipment, neither last night, nor just now. But I had unclear problems with vimeo videos for several times in the past. Maybe these require too much resources or anything else that my computer does not have (like any sophisticated new software or alike). I don't ...

Re: NEW - instructional videos for Play Irish Music on the Blues Harp

I tried to watch the trailer video. It was not possible. The video stopped constantly after some seconds before it continued for some seconds again and so on. So the playing was all cut into little pieces. 1. Is the video's rate of data too high for my computer or for my connection? 2. Is this the s...

Re: QUESTION: Is diatonic solo tuned harmonica with recessed reedplates and 12 holes produced?

Why it must be recessed (= lipped) combs? With standard combs of wood there would be Seydel Solist Pro 12. And if it could be 13 holes as well, there would be Brendan's Lucky 13 with standard plastic combs. And these are even available readily tuned as Power Chromatics as well. dear greetings triona

Re: Looking for a Hohner Bass slider mouthpiece.

Those seem to be quite rare anyway. Does Brendan remenber, how many of them are out at all? I was intrigued by the idea at first sight too. But then I started to think about the costs and the additional work effort to finish the setup, and then I compared it to the likelihood how often I would play ...

Re: Seydel Symphony 48 now available as configurable!

... to keep the slide pushed for most of a tune. Compared to a spring, a magnet should exert a smaller force when in the out position, but a stronger force when pressed all the way in, and while this should ease fast slider action I worry that keeping the slide pressed will be hard. ... I think you...

Re: Lucky 13 - Best harp I've played!

I am still impressed with mine after quite a bit of playing time on my PowerChro G, D and C (retuned). I will be looking to get Gnarly to tune one down to A for me soon. I would get a full set of keys, if they were available. I guess the fact that these are playable chromatically makes most people ...
