Re: New Album: UNADORNED

Hi Brendan, I just got me a download copy. It had been just running in the background, while I wrote this. :) Sounds nice. Interesting is the mix of Chinese style and Irish tunes on some of the tracks. Not that you were the first to do so - Chieftains did it since long ago - but now also on the harm...

Re: Q: How to join two harps with magnets?

Seems to be a very good idea. Thanks for sharing. I would prefer to mount the wedges the other way round, so that the distance between the two harps is narrower at the mouthpiece than at the outlet. I think this would meet my ergonomy better. Anyway, for playing electrically (with microphone cupped)...

Re: Table of reedplate dimensions?

Looks quite helpful, if someone is in need for spareparts to any odd old or exotic model not longer available, as well as for some tuning jobs.
Thank you.

Re: Tombo Pocket Bass harp: re-tuning

Of the original natural notes, only the D is repeated. No. The A besides the D is duplicated too. If you want to break the order of the notes in fifths from left to right and in thirds from the lower row to the upper row, then you can do so. You even can retune one of the A's into a G# or a Bb. The...

It is up to you to suggest this to Seydel.
Maybe they might add it.

Re: TWIN-CHROMATIC

Ok. 2 sliders seem to be better than 3 indeed. Not only from the production as well as from the Helmholtz issues, but at least certainly from the handling when playing. Usually the less complicated does better in the practice. But I can not imagine how this construction with the screws and the large...

Re: TWIN-CHROMATIC

This one is really great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMnqCs1S9qc The very specific features together with the - necessarily - high price might be some reason, why there are not so many outside. But for an idea like this quartertone harmonica it is necessary or at least very useful to use an adv...

Re: Placement of "extra" notes?

Me too. And I even prefer low and extra low tunings. Some others do as well. I have even a Chordomonika II (the one with the 2 slides), made on the base of a Hohner 270. The maker did cut off two notes on each reedplate (i.e. 4 notes in all) of the original setting on the top and added two on the lo...

wanted: Tommy Reily: "Studies for Chromatic Harmonica"

A friend of mine is looking for the book Tommy Reily: "Studies for Chromatic Harmonica". Here is told, that it were out of stock, but would be reeditet again. But this was in 2015: http://www.tommyreilly.co.uk/book1.htm As long as here are many users from UK (where the book comes from) and US, maybe...
