Re: New Tool and Method for Improving Harmonica Reed Response

And if it should not work with the harmonica like expected, it can be used eventually for painting the nails anyway. :mrgreen:

Re: New Tool and Method for Improving Harmonica Reed Response

My first thought after I had heard your first words to describe the issue: To lower the base of each reed by engraving a little notch into the reedplate under each reed to countersink it to the surface of the reedplate. But this were not less work and hazzle than bending and reshaping each reed. An ...

Re: PowerBender Versus EdHarmonica

FYI, if anyone wants to try ED without messing with tuning, amazon sells them for $30 which is a pretty good deal for the buck (designed by easttop - search edharmonica). I prefer buying reedplates from Seydel. I recommend this too. :) And if I want to save money with just trying any new tuning, I ...

Re: Comb of Fanfare S question

All the tremolos I know have these horizontal dividers - and all octave harps I know as well. I guess Eric explained the reasons for this very well. And this has already been like this long before the chromatic harps even had been invented.

Re: PowerBender Versus EdHarmonica

... there is no perfect harmonica tuning! Either you choose just one and live with it, good and bad, for the sake of simplicity - or you keep a few tunings handy to suit particular styles/pieces. ... I know which side of the fence I'm on, but also that it's a minority choice: the vast majority will...

Re: Easttop Melody Bass Harmonica - Layout Question

Usually most of these asian layouts make some sense. To say more about it, it is necessary to know whether it is a blow only (most probably) or a blow and draw. The last note of the upper reed plate is not readable clearly. Most probably it means "A#/Bb" - that would make more sense), but it could m...

Re: Notation Software with Harmonica Plugins - Recommendations wanted

If I had realized this earlier, I could have written my reply a little bit shorter. :lol: And it has neither been invented by me nor by Edvin. It is the nick of a user here: https://thesession.org/tunes/139#setting26435 Btw: This is a very nice site anyway. It contains lots and lots of fine tunes an...

Re: Notation Software with Harmonica Plugins - Recommendations wanted

Maybe I did not catch the question all right. :oops: But it was not meant as a joke at all. It was an answer to this part of the question, as far as I had understood it: How can I bring notation into a digitally reproducable form the easiest, fastest and cheapest way? As I learned by your diligent a...
