Re: Discontinued

The ChromaBender was discontinued due to problems with the maker, Hering. They have been taken over by new management and communication, always difficult, became too tiresome to deal with. Eventually the hassle factor outweighed everything else and it was simply easier to cease dealing with the com...

Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

Thanks , I’ll be sure to watch out for that when I put mine together. And... As Brendan advice halfvalving is a must, but this is only standard procedure for me since i have done this for serveral years already.

Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

Anyone get one yet? Impressions or issues, or tips for assembly and playing? I have one on order, but I was just wondering if any regular players had given it a run yet. Brendan, Boris, and Mitch make it sound great! But then, they could play blades of grass and sound good. I have a minichromatic/S...

Re: Asiabend or solo-tuned unibender?

We got a big number of orders for the SwitchHarp/MiniChrom and it overwhelmed our capacity to make them quickly. We stopped orders for a short time to improve production systems.

Re: How would you retune an Asia Bend?

The x-reeds simply need to be bent out a bit for tuning, so they have a normal gap and sound when blown. When you have them at the pitch you want return them to zero gap. Only the blow x-reeds should be sharp, the draws tuned as you normally would. Does the Unibender also require tuning of the x-re...

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

So far i found 3 apps in Appstore that have variable pitch settings to use with MiniPitch Bender. These are Galileo(organ), Poison-202 and Music Studio 2. And of course Thor we mentioned earlier.

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

Thanks Brendan !
I really like the possibility/simplicity to use it with my iPad and use it at all places. Just plug it in and play. And there is also a growing numbers of apps to choose from.
