Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

I was thinking a locking mechanism would be very useful on this device. I can't picture it exactly, but something. I presume a hard restraint might be counterproductive to finetuning - and to quartertone tunings as well. The latter maybe might not be an intended main feature, but as it has been men...

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

The only inconvenience I expect from these slides in comparison to a standard harmonica is, that they might disturb my lips's movement along the coverplates when playing fast and with full chords. With this I put the harp relatively deep into my mouth. So the slide knobs possibly might cause a fric...

Re: Introducing the GASKET-VALVE System

The chromatic Gasket-Valve will require all the existing valves to be pulled off and their glue patches thoroughly removed - which is a job most chrom players will not wish to do ... That might be true. But I have 2 very fine 280 "Larry Adler", about 50 years old I presume. On them I blow away one ...

Re: Introducing the GASKET-VALVE System

Hi Brendan, looks very fine and seems quite easy ti fit, compared to standard valves. In your video you told about valve sets for chromatics. But I can not find them on your web site. The most urgent I would need are for Hohner 280. But perspectively I am interested also for my Hohner CX-12, Hohner ...

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

Oh yes. We will see. And I must wait some little time more too before I can put an order myself. At the moment my money is down. :(
Some governmental authorized gangsters hacked my bank account. :twisted:

Re: High D diatonic chrom?

(last part) Talking about Slide Diatonics, there is the Seydel Sampler as well. It is a “double diatonic”, comparable to Brendan’s discontinued “Irish Session Harp” (ISH). On both of them the slider switches between two reedplates containing each a full range solo tuned diatonic key over 3 full oct...

Re: High D diatonic chrom?

... how Brendan in New Irish Harmonica made a diatonic chromatic in high D. If he turned a standard into that then I will try that. If you mean a "slide diatonic" with this, he might have used this instrument out of his former production: https://up.picr.de/33960915dv.jpg http://brendan-power.com/h...

Re: High D diatonic chrom?

Given that the highest (and standard) key is C, ... no chromatics in production higher than C. The Hohner CX-12 is available in F, E, Eb, D, C, B, Bb, A, G, LC (from high to low). I.e. 5 keys above C, including D as the usual labeling is suggesting. Yours is apparently different. I shall find out, ...

I do have a CX 12 in D.

It is low (a step above the tenor C chromatic).

Is your CX-12 an original Hohner?
Or is it one of Brendan's discontinued customized CX-12?
That might make a difference maybe.

Re: High D diatonic chrom?

I have written a long post to answer and discuss this. But the system does not accept its upload. It shows constantly an "error 403" instead. Sorry. edit: Problem solved now. Seems to be a limit to the length of posts. Now I have cut the post in three parts following downside. dear greetings triona
