Tuning chromatic

Do you tune your chromatic with the reedplates screwed on or do you just hold the reedplate with your fingers on the comb? The option to plink the reed to settle after a slight tuning is not avaiable if the reedplate is screwed. If no one else have Seydel deluxe steel maybe Brendan can answer what t...

Re: NEW HARPS: Lucky 13 in Solo and PowerChromatic Tunings

A good tip and i have no problem to use soldering...thanks! :) I have not yet decided what i want to do with my Lucky 13 in G. Are still waiting for them to arrive. My Lucky 13 in D have just arrived but i prefer it higher. The two first holes are hardly bendable and i like to use all bends. With PC...

Re: NEW HARPS: Lucky 13 in Solo and PowerChromatic Tunings

Yes Sachlaw, i have Soloist pro 12 in C. I have often C as a orientation point because of my weak theory mind...lol And i now also frequently compare it with my powerbender tuning and tranfer my solos and scales to powerchromatic. However, i have not looked at Lucky 13 yet to compare it with Soloist...

Re: NEW HARPS: Lucky 13 in Solo and PowerChromatic Tunings

The PowerChromatic tuning was a nice surprise to me. After have played with it a few hours with a couple of different scales it now flows very easy when improvising. Only one semitone bend on each hole also simplifies it. I have only played with Seydel soloist pro 12 for now (embossed and now valved...

Re: Lucky 13 powerchromatic vs Seydel Soloist pro 12

Thanks! :D ...i got the Soloist pro in the mail yesterday and played a couple of hours today fiddling around with it and just tried to get the feeling of it. It sure helps to have played powerbender before. I also translated some of my old solos to powerchromatic to get a better view of blow/draw no...

Re: Lucky 13 powerchromatic vs Seydel Soloist pro 12

Thanks guys...i have no problems to make it louder and more responsive with a little tweaks but theory is not my strongest part. I just wonderd if the layout on the draw and blow pattern is more logical on Lucky 13 compaired to Soloist Pro. Custom and vat is not very positive at the moment since Swe...

Re: Harmonicas with Modular Reedplates

And also simplify or compensate for Helmholtz with higher pitched reeds/key if it could be adapted to Unibender or Switch-harp? :roll:

Re: Harmonicas with Modular Reedplates

I mostly use 2 tunings and is more interested in the ability to play those chromatically so the modular harmonica is not my big interest right now, but like DanPa say, for those who is interested in experiment with many different tunings or even beginners who are unsure what tuning/s that suits them...
