Re: Keys of Irish songs

Thank you for the link and for the exact numeric evaluation. And what can we learn from this? 2 harmonicas in D and G are way enough, for the biginning anyway, for future in most cases. And this will cover most of the related modes as well. Take a Richter or a Paddy or a Solo / Solo Orchestra - choo...

Re: Seydel Nonslider

As soon as the NonSlider appears in the Configurator, I will jump in. Seydel makes any possible configuration on special request, even if it is not included in the configurator on their website. It only must be possible. This means that all parts which are necassary to configurate the harmonica are...

Re: Seydel Nonslider

I see it now in "Diverse Spare Parts" for "Chromatic" at 69.95 USD "without VAT". I don't know if this means that VAT is yet to be added, or it might mean that no VAT will be added. "without VAT" = no VAT (tax) included - like always for exportation That means you must pay tax in USA (or elsewhere)...

Re: Seydel Nonslider

More simple: Just change the two reed plates against each other. It changes blow-draw-direction as well. If you want to avoid this, choose 2 configurated reed plates where the keys are changed concerning the blow-draw-direction. Keep in mind, that the Sampler has both of the keys on 1 reed plate eac...

Re: Playing Rolls or Turns on Harmonica

And I know one more (physically acoustic!) harmonica on which I can do it. :D And I use it widely. 8-) It is the Hohner Chordomonica II - a nearly forgotten ingenious invention of the well renowned harmonica virtuoso and temporally former chief manager of the Hohner company. It was once right off-th...

Re: The All-Trills All-Bends Dimi (aka Edvin's newest curiosity tuning)

And Brendan already has got the touch. :D While this would be a very expressive chromatic for many styles, I'm sceptical about its use in Celtic music. At the speed the tunes go, you need to have all the notes of the scale as in-built notes without a button push. Besides the already mentioned domina...

Re: The All-Trills All-Bends Dimi (aka Edvin's newest curiosity tuning)

You know the feeling: The band start playing an Irish reel in Ab or C#m, and you left that particular slide diatonic at home. This would require a double chromatic , unfortunately. A double diatonic wouldn't do. Brendan used to make them: https://brendan-power.com/discontinued-harps.php#double-chro...

Re: The All-Trills All-Bends Dimi (aka Edvin's newest curiosity tuning)

It's actually kind of neat, isn't it? :) Actually it seems like. Not that I have understood everything you told here thoroughly. But as a matter of fact - double diatonics are are a frequently used and beloved speciality of mine. :D But some questions: 1. "Brendan's Double Diatonic" ? Do you mean t...

Re: Seydel Nonslider

My argument was if someone have one or two unused deluxe in their drawer because it did not meet the expectations as is, Propably this is a thing that nobody at Seydel's ever did expect nor can imagine. :D ... you can freely switch many parts between many of the other models because of same measure...
