Re: Bluesy slide-harp tuning

I use a pair of half valved Paddy Richter harmonicas in a switch harp, the slider drops most notes a semitone so it is close to what you describe. There are some neat effects that can be done. Play a note, bend it, push the button but keep bending, then go back. Depending on the hole you can get a n...

Looking for a Hohner Bass slider mouthpiece.

Prefer a 264 265 is ok too.
Purchase or trade.
I have harmonicas to trade, will tune to your desired tuning, I’m no Brendan or Gnarley, but I can solder, file, and tune.
If Brendan has prototypes or seconds taking up space in the shop I’d be willing to give one of them a shot too.

Re: Regular Scottish Tuning

I guess I’m still seeing them as something different. From my point of view (maybe I’m wrong) With inverted bebop every blow is higher than the preceding draw, and every draw is higher than the corresponding blow note in the same hole. The regular Scottish seems to break that pattern with one draw n...

Re: Tremolo octave range in single reed harmonica?

Check out the lucky 13 harmonicas in solo and power chromatic tunings.
I like the paddy Richter ones, but they are missing a note in the bottom octave.

Re: Regular Scottish Tuning

I think it differs on holes two and three.

Re: Regular Scottish Tuning

Neat.
It looks like it might be really good for flute and whistle tunes.
The F# / G#. G/A pair of holes looks like it might be confusing. Did you find it difficult to maneuver?

Re: Introduce yourself

Welcome aboard.
It sounds like maybe you had leakage between the slide in and slide out chambers.
Sealing a row of windsavers May have fixed the issue, but you have sacrificed a lot of reeds to get there. The problem was probably in the way the mouthpiece/slider was assembled.

Great stuff Brendan. I can’t wait.

Re: Notes from the Workshop

Great news.
Thanks for the update.
I’m waiting for the day I can try a unibender and maybe a new switch harp.
