Re: Pentatonic tunings

This is very interesting indeed. Thank you for sharing. One-key "Pentabender" tuning ( plays C major scale without bends; has F major pentatonic in blows, G major pentatonic in draws ): DE.FG.GA.AB.CD.DE.FG.GA.AB.CD. There are quite a lot of enharmonics with plain breath - i.e. without bending - as ...

Re: beginner harp for irish/folk

And Seydel offers the 10-hole-harp in Do-it (Dale King's open Irish tuning) too. I like it very much for jigs and reels. Another option is the Seydel Sampler in D+G (called the "Irish"). It is similar to the discontinued Irish Session Harp of Brendan (solo tuned, 12-hole, with slide). If you are int...

Re: Installing powercomb on 260

Ask your search engine for suppliers to model making / scale modelling. In Germany and Europe there are plenty of them. I presume there are some in the US as well. They also supply tools like screwdrivers, taps, drills etc. Same size (preferrably M1.6) would be ok. If the hole is already too large -...

So if Brendan does not object, I will try to start some discussion in a new "Pentatonic tunings" thread. ... Why should he do so? And this is the place: http://www...

Re: New PowerBender and PowerDraw Harps

Not that this tuning were an option to me at the moment, but ... riveted reeds ... http://up.picr.de/17281789wj.png Back to the roots. Is this an exception, or does it mark a new standard in the Easttop production? Will Lucky 13 maybe return to riveted reeds too one day? This would be an advantage f...

Re: The OVERBLOW BOOSTER - Overblows Made Easy, New OB Effects

One more question: When considerering, whether the "booster-bar" would be a useful device for me, I came over this review of the Suzuki Overdrive MR-300 by Pat Missin: http://www.patmissin.com/ffaq/q25.html I presume that the main features of the Suzuki Overdrive and of your overblow booster are abo...

Re: The OVERBLOW BOOSTER - Overblows Made Easy, New OB Effects

I just considered this as well - with the same thoughts in my mind as Edvin. The video with Brendan's succesful and fine overblows - considering him as a rather poor overblower - made a convincing impression on me. Seems as it could help me too. I look forward to your report, to decide whether I sho...

Re: Spanish tuning

Been reading up on the Spanish tuning. It seems it is based on the Spanish Gypsy scale, a.k.a. the Phrygian dominant scale. Other names are the Jewish scale, or Spanish Phrygian scale. That is, the six notes on the harp that form the two chords E - G# - B and F - A - C, respectively, has a missing ...

Re: Is there a public calendar for Brendan Power?

I would think too, that this were nice.
If other artists would like to do as well.

If it is interesting for anyone or not depends on the country or continent, where the event is to happen of course.
