Re: Diatonic PowerCombs and Stealth-Valves Released

Brendan,

I really like your idea of the stealth valves. However, I have nine Lucky 13's and the price to apply stealth valves to all nine is rather pricey for me. I didn't see any quantity pricing for them. Is there?

Thanks!

Carry Case Suggestion

I purchased a 12 slot Lucky 13 carry case from RockinRonsMusicSD.com (nothing but outstanding service), loaded it up with my growing collection of Lucky 13's (eight so far) and headed out on my lunch break to the open field across the street with the big shade tree (beautiful San Diego!). I noticed ...

Re: Paddy-Power-Bender

Crazy you should mention this. I am wanting the same thing. I've been looking at different tunings that would make playing melodies easier and considering converting a Lucky 13 with a broken reed into a Melody Maker harp. But then reading about the Brendan's PowerBender that would get rid of the hol...

Re: Any Chance We'll See Melody Maker Tuning?

Yes, I've seen the reed replacement video on the Lucky 13 page. But where to get the reeds? I posted the question to Brendan under his Customizer announcement post. I have a cheap harp I'm going to use to learn how to raise a reed 1/2 pitch (think Melody Maker). If I feel good about it I'll take a L...

Re: LUCKY 13 RECOMMENDED CUSTOMISERS/REPAIRERS

Brendan, are here any stocking suppliers of Lucky 13 reeds in the US or is the only source in Shanghai? If not I'd recommend Rocket Ron's. My order Lucky 13 G order was placed Monday and in my mailbox Tuesday when I got home from work.

Re: Any Chance We'll See Melody Maker Tuning?

Thanks all for your responses. Brendan, it keeps coming back to this - there are a lot of good off-the-shelf harps available, but full freedom to explore the harp requires a box of tools!

Any Chance We'll See Melody Maker Tuning?

Any chance we'll see a Lucky 13 in the Melody Maker (MM) tuning? Would any one else be interested in this? Considering that 4 (or 5?) reeds need to be modified to make a Melody Maker out of even a Paddy Richter, the cost to modify a harp to Melody Maker is equal or more than the price in a new Lucky...
