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...

Re: All 24 major and minor triad chords in 12-hole slide harp

That was exactly what was coming into my mind, when I read your post. For I have the Suzuki SSCH-56 since last week. At least it seemed to me like the basic idea would be the same, or at least similar. Here is the layout of the Suzuki: https://up.picr.de/25180855ea.jpg Sorry for the poor print. I ho...

Re: PowerChromatic Demo Video with Tuning Diagrams

As far as I can remember Seydel's sales policy, they build the "harmonica of the month" when there are 20 orders until the deadline of the offer. In the case of this harmonica this is September 30th 2017. But it should be available further on as a "configurated" tuning. These cost 50 € more than the...

Re: Mind-instrument or Orientation on different harps

Quite instressting, focusing on a few and practise. Ok thanks. I use many different types and tunings. First I try which one seems to be suitable best for a certain piece I want to play. This one I use always for these pieces. Then I practice to play. Afterwards I usually have no difficulties when ...

Re: Pocket bass extended, bass with draw reeds

Nicely done. That is exactly the way I play this wonderful little instrument too. 1. It is not impossible to build a Blow-and-draw-bass, at least technically. For a test I turned around one of the reedplates on my Tombo pocket bass. The draws come clearly in the same sound as blown. The approach and...
