Re: Power Chromatic

@Nick I find the doubled A or the 5th scale Tone, If You Are playing in second position (D major), to be very useful. For instance if I know I want to warble between the 5th and the 7th tone (A-C) all use the blow note because the 7th would be the adjacent 6 blow allowing for quick transition betwee...

Re: Tools for reed replacement

Brendans own brand harps (orange comb) are welded reeds. You will need a reed wrench, proper size drill bits, drill tap, replacement screws or self tapping screws. Either a drill press or pencil vise. AND of course, the right sized replacement reed. Here is a step by step Brendan video on suzuki wel...

Re: Power Chromatic in non-slider harps?

I think you make an excellent point! Perhaps the only thing that makes PC tuning more suitable with sliders are the bend enharmonics that are available. But other than that, I can't see why not use the tuning in a 10-hole harp.

Re: Power Chromatic

Perhaps I'm confused on what harp you're playing on the tune. Is it not a P.C. Bb scx-56 played in 2nd position-F?
Your trasitioning from the G to the A with a button push?

Re: Power Chromatic

Right! That's exactly my point in a way. On my power chromatics, when I push the slide in it raises the pitch a half step, so in essence I have a Bb(slide out) and B (slide in). BUT, your slide gives you a whole step, so are you using a power chromatic configired as slide diatonic(slide press giving...

Replacement parts.

Brendan,
I've seen your videos on replacing reeds on an scx-48 reedplate. Very informative!! Wondering if you know of a place where I could order individual reeds for that harp as well as those self-tapping screws! Its for my C power chromatic (stock scx-48-G)
Thanks!
