Re: Middle C on Lucky 13 Solo?

These 13 hole harmonicas are all lower — the added notes are lower.
So the first octave starts with C3.
Glad these are available now, I used to have to retune them!

Re: Power Chromatic

I had converted a 64 to half valved Power Chromatic, but I'm fickle--it's now a Dimi.

Re: Spreadsheet for calculating chord frequencies

Boy, I just use a tuner app on my iOS device and my ears.
Numbers are great, but this is more than I have time for.
Have fun tho!

I think Power Chromatic would be nice on the L13.
Not ready to do one yet tho . . .

Hole	1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8	9	10
Blow	C#	E	G	B	D	F#	A	D	F#	A
Draw	D	F#	A	C#	E	G	B	C#	E	G
This is a tuning I came up with, Richter on top and circular on the bottom.
I call it New World since that's where I am from :lol:
Originally developed on a 365, it would fit nicely on a Lucky 13!

Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

I have retuned the L13 to solo a couple of times, using a C and retuning to start on E3.

The reed material is very hard, certainly a ...

Suzuki had a very fertile period of development and innovation for about 5 years <snip> Just the low Manjis since
Don't forget the SSCH, that's an innovation!

Re: New Models from the Big Manufacturers

Nothing new from Suzuki lately, at least that I know of from working in the warehouse from which products imported into the US are shipped to vendors. I am, of course, the repair tech, but not much work, for whatever reason. I'd really like to see some superlow Manji harps, they only go down to C3 a...
