Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

Well. I've finally had the joy, experience, um, whatever you want to call it, of doing several Pre Release re tunings of the Lucky 13 to both Double Paddy Richter and several keys of Power Benders, conversions (Manually). Most customers who contacted me, (especially for Power Bender) took me up on m...

Re: Lucky 13 International Video Competition

To Winslow- ... Maybe you could have had some slick dancers and a big background of vocal singers too, all choreographed to match your dual bend magic ? :) . For Me, well, I played with my guitar at the same time, which is really not like exactly playing "with" someone else, but its like playing wit...

Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

Hi Brendan: For double Paddy conversions my two bits would be that it's maybe easier and less accident prone to have replacement reeds for the Paddy notes already 2 semi tones up for the 3 and 6 blows, and install them. Particularly with the lower reed , it's a lot of filing to get to the paddy note...

Re: Asia bend, Auto Valve comb and the Lucky 13!!

Hi Weetin: I have a couple of solo tuned Seydel Soloist Pro's in Low C and Regular C. (They may have to be configured that way). Also several 14 hole Hohner Steve Baker Specials which have the same tuning layout as the Lucky 13's but with the added 14 hole note. I like the solo tuning in a smaller h...

Re: Asia bend, Auto Valve comb and the Lucky 13!!

Hi Brendan:

I can can find some time, I could make a short Video of DIY tuning your own reed on a Lucky 13, but I think there are plenty of things already out there on You Tube. The older G still needs to come down in pitch overall as its clocking in around 445Hz or so. Cheers-

Hi

I'm in the process of taking a "G" lucky 13 to double Paddy tuning. For rack harp playing with guitar in trad sessions. More info after the Paddy surgey .

Re: Asia bend, Auto Valve comb and the Lucky 13!!

I've been a fan of the Auto Valve Hybrids for years and was an early adopter of the Power Combs for them. The D and G plates are my favorites for Irish session music. Easy third or Paddy tuned. Also got an Asia bend a while back but must fess that I need to play it more. My second Lucky 13 showed up...
