Chord harmonica out of a seydel sample (12 holes switch harp) (and 16 hole variant) 16 holes customizer anyone?

I would like to build a chromatic harmonica out of a seydel sample (12 holes switch harp). With it, it will be possible to play most major and minor chords (+major 7th and minor 7th), but there will be no diminished nor dominant 7th chords. Here's my layout: |1 |2 |3 |4 |5 |6 |7 |8 |9 |10|11|12| |d ...

Re: Modal mixture slide harp

After doing some tests with two diatonic harmonicas (to simulate the slide harmonica), I did some final changes to my initial layout and I placed my order at Seydel. I'm looking forward to play with it. I'll post some videos once I receive it.

Re: Modal mixture slide harp

Thank you for the feedback. As for tuning harps, I have never tuned a slide harp yet. I will get a custom harp from Seydel instead. I'm very confident when tuning diatonic harps, but I really don't wanna break an expensive slide harp.

Re: First position aeolian natural minor custom tuning.

Very interesting, however it seems that people at Suzuki are selling some other kind of tuning. Their C natural minor tuning has both G and G# on the same harp. It could be some kind of Dorian+Aeolian equivalent of Lydian+Ionian "Country Tuning".

Re: Lydian Tuning

Nice layout Trinoa. I would like to get a chromatic harmonica with some custom tuning some day.

EdwinW:
For Dorian tuning, I used a natural minor Lee Oskar and I lowered the pitch of the 2nd draw (-2 semitones).
Here's what it can do:
